Located in southwestern Uganda, Mgahinga Gorilla National Park is Uganda’s smallest national park but one of the biggest reasons to Visit Uganda. Made up of 3 of the 7 Virunga volcanoes, it is the only park in Uganda where you can track Mountain Gorillas and Golden Monkeys, two world endangered animals. The other park with Mt Gorillas in Uganda is Bwindi National Park, but no Golden Monkeys. Mgahinga National Park has one habituated gorilla group called Nyakagezi, made up of 9 members. However it has some nomadic tendencies that it sometimes crosses into the neighboring national parks in Rwanda and Congo. Note that Mgahinga is contiguous with Virunga National Park in the DR Congo to the west and with Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda to the south. The 3 parks form the Virunga Conservation Area. Mgahinga is home to a number of big game including buffalos, forest elephants, leopards, jackals, serval, bush pigs, duikers, and bushbucks. Birdlife in the park is also quite impressive with recorded species of species about 178 – 184.
