In celebration of Earth Day, CNN Travel rounded up the best of world’s a spectacular place, full of hidden and overt beauty.
From lush African forests to vast Latin American deserts, watery Balkan paradises to ancient Middle Eastern cities.
You guessed right, Bwindi Impenetrable Forest made it to list of world’s top breathtaking, beautiful destinations
Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, the Dense, lush and otherworldly, Bwindi Impenetrable Forest is one of the last redoubts of the mountain gorilla.
Over 400 call this UNESCO-protected national park home, with the chance for visitors to trek to and meet habituated groups.
Its biodiversity extends far beyond its most famous inhabitants, however; 348 bird species and 220 butterfly species can be found within its 331-square-kilometer expanse.
Only three African places made it to the list. Others are Samburu, Kenya and Mount Toubkal in Morocco.
Samburu, Kenya: Thanks to its relative inaccessibility, Samburu, in the heart of Kenya, is a haven for some of Africa’s most beguiling wildlife. The grassland and acacia-dotted landscapes of its national reserve are home to the endangered reticulated giraffe and Grevy’s zebra, as well as the pioneering Elephant Watch Camp, run by conservationist Saba Douglas-Hamilton.
Mount Toubkal, Morocco: At 4,167 meters, Mount Toubkal lays claim to the title of “the roof of North Africa.” The path to its summit zigzags across empty valleys, past holy shrines and up steep snowfields before emerging onto a ridge that falls away to give climbers unrivaled views across the Atlas Mountains. It’s a peaceful world away from the buzz of nearby Marrakech.
Early this month, CNN Travel named Bwindi Impenetrable National Park as one of the world’s greatest hiking trails in the world.
The Park came in 15th position on the list. CNN’s Joe Minihane wrote, “Wildlife walks don’t come more fascinating than a trip into Uganda’s Bwindi Impenetrable forest, where you can get up close and personal with area’s mountain gorilla population”.

The ancient Forest is a UNESCO World Heritage Site known for its natural wonders, rugged beauty, the only park where Gorillas and Chimpanzees coexist. The forest is home to more habituated Gorilla Families for visitors than any other park in Rwanda or Congo.
The park has been described as the only park in Africa where you can spend four -hours with a Gorilla Family on the one-of-a-kind Gorilla Habituation Experience with only four visitors to a Gorilla Group.
