BWINDI BUHOMA COMMUNITY VILLAGE WALK AND BATWA INTERACTION
The Buhoma Village Tourist Walk opened in Dec 2012, and was designed by MBIFCT, in collaboration with Uganda Wildlife Authority, to increase the variety of tourism activities offered at Bwindi National Park and to provide members of the local community with an alternative source of direct income linked to conservation. The Village Walk is a concrete example of a community-based tourism enterprise where local people have participated in the design of its activities, invested resources in its development and benefit from its returns. At the same time, the local people have an incentive to conserve the natural and cultural resources on which income generation depends.
BWINDI FOREST WALK
This can be undertaken with a Uganda Wildlife Authority guide to allow you to hike along the trails and enjoy the forest flora, fauna and wildlife such as monkeys at close proximity. A popular choice is the 3-4 hour hike to the waterfall.
Overnight Buhoma Lodge (B, L, D)
Return scheduled flight from Kihihi to Entebbe. Transfer to hotel or international airport (Entebbe) included
