Biwindi Mountain Gorilla
Photo By James Pelton

  • Title: Biwindi Mountain Gorilla
  • State/Province/Region:
  • Country: Uganda
  • Nearest Area: Queen Elizabeth National Park
  • Nearest Town: Kampala
  • Brief Directions: Part of Queen Elizabeth National Park in south eastern Uganda but high up in the Biwindi Mountains. An overnight stay in one of the mountain lodges is usually necessary since the mountain park entrance is difficult to reach even by vehicle.
  • Best Season: Autumn
  • Description: Uganda is one of the few countries that offers guided mountain gorilla trekking with a permit. It can be arduous at time when the only way to view these magnificant primates is to follow the guides down the mountainside off-trail. This large silverback seemed caught in a pensive moment unconcerned by our presence.
  • Gear: Nikon D90 with 80-200 f2.8 zoom
