The Habinyanja Trail
Despite offering a long hike that takes 4-6hrs to conquer, this trail attracts over 2,000 nature lovers every year. It offers outstanding sightings of Bwindi’s best kept secrets. These include the ever pristine Habinyanja swamp, Muyanga River, a rock that nature’s forces have shaped like the map of Africa, a relatively steep ascent that is full of 220 butterfly species inclusive of endemics like Charaxes fournierae, Graphium gudenusi and Papilio leucotaenia.
For this hike you need good hiking boots with treads as you prepare to overcome its most steep stretches like Habigorogoro–Riyovi Ridge. In the end, your efforts will be rewarded with views of River Buhoma and birds like Black Bee Eaters, Pel’s Fishing Owl and African Black Duck among others.
