There are strict rules for tourists to minimize the risk of disease transmission to the gorillas. The park’s diverse species are partly a result of the large variations of elevation [4] :8 and habitat types in the park, [11] and may also be because the forest was a refuge for species during glaciations in the Pleistocene epoch. The gorillas seldom react to tourists.

A census of the mountain gorilla population in the park showed that its numbers had increased modestly from an estimated individuals in[19] to individuals in to individuals in[18] and in In some months, the Bwindi gorilla diet is very similar to that of Bwindi chimpanzees. It was also found that Bwindi gorillas travel farther per day than Virunga gorillas, particularly on days when feeding primarily on fruit than when they are feeding on fibrous foods. The mountain gorilla is an endangered species, with an estimated total population of about individuals.

The park has total protection, although communities adjacent to the park can access some of its resources. Some of the people who live in these areas are among the poorest people in Uganda. The high population and poor agricultural practises place a great pressure on the Bwindi forest, and are one of the biggest threats to the park. Its designation as a national park gave the park higher protection status.

This closing of access caused large amounts of resentment and conflict among these local communities [6] and park authorities. Non-Batwa farmers who had cut down the forested areas in order to cultivate them, received compensation and their land rights were recognised. The park is in a remote location, and the roads are in poor condition.

Several tour companies are able to reserve gorilla tracking permits for prospective visitors to Bwindi. The gorillas seldom react to tourists. There are strict rules for tourists to minimize the risk of disease transmission to the gorillas.
