Uganda is a wonderful country that offers several tourist activities that you can participate in while on your Uganda Safaris. Many people will travel for long distances to visit a given country to different reasons. Many come to Uganda to trek the rare mountain gorillas, others come for chimpanzee tracking, mountain climbing, wildlife safaris, community tours and or walking safaris Uganda.
This is another walking safaris Uganda that can either start in Buhoma or Nkuringo. Initially, there was a road that used to connect Buhoma which is in the north and Nkuringo in the southern part of Bwindi Impenetrable National Park but people misused the road by instead cutting trees, killing gorillas and other forest animals which resulted into closing it down. For those interested in walking safaris Uganda can now walk from either side of the forest following this road. Please note that many prefer walking from Nkuringo to Buhoma due to the fact that the southern part of Bwindi Impenetrable National park is at a high altitude and as such, you will be slopping instead of climbing. This walk is a guided one and you will have a chance to spot several primates, birds, butterflies and so much more.
If you are not a fun of the community then you have a chance of interacting with nature while at Buhoma. This guided forest walk exposes you to what the forest has to offer apart from the rare mountain gorillas. You will follow designed trails with your guide for birding, butterfly identification and you will meet several rivers and waterfalls along the way.

Another interesting walk safaris Uganda is the Bigodi wetland walk in Kibale National Park. Operated and run by the local community, this walking safari enables you to go for birding, primate identification in the nearby village of Bigodi.
