[11/5, 6:16 PM] +256 778 147981: The Batwa are one of the oldest surviving tribes in Africa. Conditions for the Batwa are terrible in Uganda. Originally forest dwellers, years ago the Batwa were evicted from their forest lands and displaced, forcing them to "squat" wherever they can find land.

The Batwa are among the poorest and most marginalized communities in Uganda.
They receive no help from the government and there is very little support from nonprofits/donations, leaving them heavily reliant on tourism for survival.

Due to COVID-19 lockdowns, tourism is halted in Uganda. The Batwa currently have NO ASSISTANCE coming in for basic necessities. THEY NEED YOUR HELP!
[11/5, 6:18 PM] +256 778 147981: Batwa People and their Culture
The Batwa also known as the Twa in Rwanda are an indigenous group of people who originally lived in the ancient Bwindi forest in Uganda until it was gazetted as a National park in 1991. The Batwa lived in harmony in the jungle with all creatures including the mountain gorillas. The Batwa were regarded as the Keepers of the forest.
Today they are some of the poorest people in the whole world with a low life expectancy and a high infant mortality rate. Some anthropologists say that most pygmy tribes such as the Batwa/the Twa have existed for more than 60,000 years in the equatorial forests. The Batwa lived a lifestyle of gathering fruit and plant, and hunting game in the forest using bows and arrows, this was mainly for both medical and food purposes. They led a harmonious life in the forests, they never practiced farming, no charcoal making or deforestation, not even the shelters they had could destroy the environment.

They have a saying “A Mutwa (singular) loves the forest just as he loves his body” Most Ugandans look at Batwa as Gorillas poachers,
Amazing 9 days safari in Uganda 🤩🦍 Thanks to Edmund,our guide, for his key insights about his beautiful country 😏
Just finished a 9 day safari with Insight Safari Holidays and it was AMAZING! Calah arranged everything and we were lucky enough to get Jack as our guide and we loved him from the moment we met him. We did the luxury version and were not disappointed. This team really does a fantastic job. I have traveled all over the world and I highly recommend this company if you are going to Uganda.
Outstanding experience.Calah arranged a terrific 12 day luxury safari with attention to every detail including gorilla trekking in Bwindi and Rwanda. Our guide and driver Bosco was second to none with a great sense of humour,excellent driving skills and a fantastic tracker in the parks.This was a once in a lifetime experience, we offer uganda safari featuring gorilla trekking, wildlife safaris, white water rafting and so much more. Great safari packages including gorilla safaris, wildlife adventure, mountain hiking, game viewing, primate watching and other adventures.
