Mgahinga Gorilla National Park is one of Uganda’s most stunning destinations and is located in the southwestern corner of the country. The park is part of the larger Virunga Conservation Area, which covers parts of Uganda, Rwanda, and the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Mgahinga is famous for being home to the endangered mountain gorillas, as well as a variety of other primate species, including golden monkeys. Trekking through the dense forests to see these magnificent creatures up close is an unforgettable experience that many visitors to Uganda come specifically to enjoy.

But gorilla trekking isn’t the only draw of Mgahinga. The park is also known for its incredible landscapes, which include a series of towering volcanoes, rolling hills, and lush valleys. Visitors can hike up Mount Sabyinyo, Mount Gahinga, and Mount Muhabura, all of which offer breathtaking panoramic views of the surrounding countryside.

In addition to its natural beauty, Mgahinga is also home to the Batwa people, one of Africa’s oldest indigenous groups. Visitors can learn about the Batwa’s traditional way of life and participate in cultural experiences such as dance performances and village visits.
