Community Interaction With Batwa Pigmies

After frequent visits to the new Batwa Pigmy village in Bwindi, Leopold King, Sanctuary Gorilla Forest Camp’s manager couldn’t help but be extremely amazed at the richness of their culture as well as their efficiency in navigating the forest. They zip through the foliage flawlessly, almost as if they had been purposely designed for that.

Sanctuary Retreats Uganda are proud to be associated with the Batwa Pigmy community. A visit to the newly established Batwa cultural village in Bwindi can be arranged for guests staying at Sanctuary Gorilla Forest Camp. This involves cultural interaction with the Batwa as guests visit a replica of their original forest lodgings and explore their ancient rainforest lifestyle as they share their tales, stories and myths…

Sanctuary Gorilla Forest Camp is the only camp nestled deep inside Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, a UNESCO World Heritage Site in southwest Uganda.
