Bwindi lives and livelihoods guided trails: Reformed poachers
Project material, 2 pages
The ‘Bwindi lives and livelihoods guided trails: Reformed poachers' is one of three new tourist trails, and other products and services, that have been developed to support poor people living close to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park in Uganda.
The trails are intended to be guided by a Bwindi Specialist Guide, who will take guests on a tour of traditional ways of life and local culture, as well as the beautiful surrounding scenery and wildlife. This flyer outlines the experience and how to book.

Gorilla-tracking tourist activities in Uganda's Bwindi national park generate critical revenue for conservation, but local benefits from tourism are limited and the illegal use of the park's resources continues. This project will develop and test new community-based tourism products and services that improve local skills and job opportunities, and the long-term prospects for the park.
