CNN has named Uganda’s Bwindi Impenetrable forest number one on its list of 25 of the most beautiful places around the world.
Uganda Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park is a biodiverse, mountainous area in the south west part of Uganda.
The park is home to many of the world’s remaining mountain gorillas that feed on roots, leaves and fruits from the park’s many trees and fern species.
You cannot complete a Uganda Safari if you have not visited the gorillas of Bwindi.
CNN’s Joe Minhane writes, “Bwindi Impenetrable Forest is one of the last redoubts of the mountain gorilla. Over 400 call this UNESCO-protected national park home, with the chance for visitors to trek to and meet habituated groups. Its biodiversity extends far beyond its most famous inhabitants.
Minhane’s list of the world’s spectacular places is based on the world full of hidden and overt beauty in every corner.
“Beauty’s also subjective. It’d be impossible to get a unanimous decision on the most beautiful places around the world but we think this list is a good start to plan your travel”.
The article was part of celebrating of Earth day and rounds up the best of the best from African forests to vast Latin American deserts, watery Balkan paradises to ancient middle east cities and Bwindi is number one.
Other places he mentioned are Samburu in Kenya, Morocco’s Mount Toubkal, Vietnam’s Ha Long Bay, Philippines’s EL Nido, New Zealand’s Rotorua, Australia’s Kata Tjuta, The Maldives and many more.
