The future of Bwindi gorilla habituation experience will depend on several facts that we want to discuss below. Bwindi gorilla habituation experience is the newest and most exciting program as far as mountain gorilla watching is concerned. Bwindi gorilla habituation experience was an innovation and creation of Uganda Wildlife Authority in their efforts to offer more time and experience to interested tourist in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. The future of Bwindi gorilla habituation experience can be traced from 2014 when Uganda Wildlife Authority decided to create a product that would allow tourists to spend more time with mountain gorillas in the rain forest of Bwindi. Bwindi impenetrable National Park has over 400 mountain gorillas which leave in the forest. Out of these about 13 gorilla families are fully habituated while two gorilla families are still under habituation. It is these two gorilla families that people are allowed to visit for four hours. These two gorilla families are located in the southern part of the forest popularly known as Rushaga and Nkuringo.
