Gorilla Tracking in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest
Forests and woodlands cover approximately 4.7 million hectares which is 24% of the total land area. The vast majority of this is woodland, while the remainder is tropical high forest and forestry plantations. Forestry is crucial to the lives of millions of Ugandans, especially the poorest sections of society. The dependence of poor people on forest resources, and their ability to improve their livelihoods through forestry, has not been adequately recognised in Uganda until now.
