Batwa Pygmy Experience
Batwa pygmies lived in the forest with animals thousands of years ago. They were fruit gatherers & hunters. Batwa were removed out of the forest by the Government of Uganda who made Bwindi a National park so as to promote tourism. The Batwa which an even stretch to a daylong affair takes place in a patch of a private forest contiguous with the National Park.
The Batwa experience provides insight into the traditional forest lives of this hunter gatherer culture. You will get to learn more about their social life style. You will meet a traditional healer who uses plants and leaves as medicine and miraculously heals his people, enjoy the energetic cultural dance performances and Vocalist traditional songs.
