Mgahinga Gorilla National Park
The Mgahinga Gorilla National Park is in the Kisoro District of far south-western Uganda. Mgahinga Gorilla National Park sits high in the clouds, at an altitude of between 2,227m and 4,127m. It was created to protect the rare mountain gorillas that inhabit its dense forests, and it is also an important habitat for the endangered golden monkey. Mgahinga’s most striking features are its three conical, extinct volcanoes, part of the spectacular Virunga Range that lies along the border region of Uganda, Congo and Rwanda. The volcanoes’ slopes backdrop a gorgeous scenery.
