Have you ever heard about Bwindi Impenetrable National Park? This less known national park is becoming a popular place to visit on the African continent. Located in South Western Uganda, Bwindi as often referred to in most guide books, is a very important conservation area protecting almost half of the world population of the endangered mountain gorillas.

The park is a UNESCO world heritage site and it is the best place for gorilla trekking in Africa. First gazetted as a forest reserve in 1932 by the British colonial masters, the park was elevated to a national park in 1991 together with the Mgahinga National Park, the Ugandan part of the Virunga protecting the endangered mountain gorillas. Please remember there are as few as about 900 mountain gorillas in the world surviving in only four national parks; Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park and Mgahinga National Park in Uganda, Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda and the Virunga National Park in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Things to See in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest

Artist is a descriptive term applied to a person who engages in an activity deemed to be an art. An artist also may be defined unofficially as “a person who expresses him- or herself through a medium”. The word is also used in a qualitative sense of, a person creative in, innovative in, or adept at, an artistic practice.

Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is the best place to see the endangered gorillas. Gorilla permits are available every day and can be booked.

Often, discussions on the subject focus on the differences among “artist” and “technician”, “entertainer” and “artisan”, “fine art” and “applied art”, or what constitutes art and what does not. The French word artiste (which in French, simply means “artist”) has been imported into the English language where it means a performer (frequently in Music Hall or Vaudeville). Use of the word “artiste” can also be a pejorative term.

  1. The proportions of this rebellion were not for a long time understood. I saw that it involved the greatest difficulties, and would call forth all the powers of the whole country.

  2. In a word, I would not take any risk of being entangled upon the river, like an ox jumped half over a fence, and liable to be torn by dogs, front and rear, without a fair chance to gore one way or kick the other.
