Get to Know Mgahinga Gorilla National Park

Find golden monkeys and a sense of peace while walking in the rain forest, but it's not the best place for gorilla treks

Mgahinga Gorilla National Park sits high in the clouds, 2,227 to 4,127 metres above sea level. Its most outstanding features are three extinct volcanoes that form part of the magnificent Virunga range, which lies along the border between Uganda, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and Rwanda. As its name suggests, Mgahinga was created to protect the endangered mountain gorillas that inhabit its dense forests. It’s also an important habitat for golden monkeys, which you can track in the forests. There’s only one habituated mountain gorilla family and it often moves across the border into the DRC or Rwanda, so Mgahinga isn’t the ideal place to go trekking for these great apes.
