Janaury and February are the dry months in Uganda's Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. Its currently hot with no sign of rain. Fruit trees have begun fruiting deep in the forest and this has pushed the gorillas further inside.

Currently, the Rushegura gorilla group are located behind the Buhoma Park Headquarters, slightly up the hill. Mubare gorilla group is close to Rubona Primary School and the Habinyanja gorilla group are back in "the neck" area of the park.
Each is a good trek with visitors returning back from their walk around 14h00.

Bitukura gorilla group, located in the Ruhija section of the park is still split into two groups. As soon as I get news of their locations and the possible reason for their split, I will post this informatoin.

For the birders, the African Green Broadbill (AGB) was last seen two months back!
Happy trekking everyone
