MGNP header 2

Mgahinga Gorilla National Park gazetted in 1991 is on area of 33.7 sq km and at an altitude of between 2,227m and 4,127m. It was set up with a purpose of protecting the rare mountain gorillas  and the endangered golden monkey which live in the dense forest.

The Batwa Tribe
The park is also of a huge cultural significance for the indigenous Batwa people who have lived in the forest for years. Batwa is a tribe of hunter-gatherers which lived in this forest and their ancient knowledge of forest secrets remains unexploited. The Batwa have been trained as guides to help visitors track the animals.

Virunga Range
The park is a home of three extinct volcanoes which form part of the spectacular Virunga Range that lies along the border region of Uganda, Congo and Rwanda. The park therefore forms part of the much larger Virunga Conservation Area which includes adjacent parks in Rwanda and Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC)

The Virunga Range contains various ecosystems and are biologically diverse, and their peaks provide a striking backdrop to this gorgeous scenery.
The park has one habituated trans-boundary gorilla group.
