The Batwa are the original custodians and guardians of these forests as they lived a hunting and food gathering life that depended on these forests. These people are believed to be the earliest inhabitants of the great lakes region of east Africa. Some historians and anthropologists say that their ancestry dates as far back as 60,000 years ago in east Africa. Presently these people can be found in Uganda Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo. In Uganda alone, it is estimated that there are about 6000 Batwa people with the majority of them living in the districts of Rukungiri, Kabale, Kisoro, and Bundibugyo.
