Our guided trail offers a unique insight into this culturally rich region of Bwindi National Park. Join the specialist guides on a walking tour illustrating traditional ways of life and local culture as you immerse yourself in the wildlife and beautiful scenery of Buhoma.
Visit the coffee plantation and tea garden, pausing to watch the farmers pick the tea or to hear about the process of growing coffee. Pass by the banana plantation and visit the local traditional healer before stopping at the viewing point for photographs as you enjoy the panoramic views from the hillside and along the Munyaga river.
Enjoy a visit to the Ride 4 a Woman project where you can watch the women weaving baskets and sewing. Browse the craft shop and feel free to ask questions about this project which helps empower women and provides a community hub and clean water pump for the people of Buhoma.
There is also the opportunity to visit the local hospital which plays a vital role in the community.
Finally, meet the Batwa community who lived in the forest for many years before it became a national park. (Extended BATWA encounters & hikes to their caves in the forest are available at additional cost).
By participating in the walk you are already supporting the local community however there are various additional activities and places of interest for those who wish to extend the tour. There are also various schools and orphanages which you are welcome to visit by arrangement. The children delight in receiving visitors to help them practice their English and demonstrate their love of singing and dancing so don't be shy!
