Batwa people

The Batwa experience was created by Uganda’s original forest inhabitants to share the tribe’s amazing heritage and traditions with the world. As of 1992, the tribe no longer lives in the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, their ancestors’ home, but they have not forgotten the old ways. Visitors can step back in time on a rainforest hike with Batwa guides, learning how they lived, hunted, and foraged, while watching for animals and birds. Through a translator, the Batwa tell ancient legends and sing traditional songs, while performing traditional dances and reenacting a hunting party.
