The last pygmies of Uganda

While I was in Uganda to see Mountain Gorillas, I had the chance to visit the last Pygmy community in Uganda. They live next to the Bwindi National Park. Just few years ago these group were still living in the jungle outside the modern world and its rules. As per today the Government takes care of them to make sure the continuity of the ethnic. Pygmies are well known by the short stature, important characteristic for people living in the dense jungle.
