Three out of eight volcanoes, which form the Virunga Mountain Range, are located in Mgahinga National Park: Mount Mahubura, Mount Gahinga and Mount Sabyinyo. These three mountains are located on the Ugandan/Rwandan border. From the base center of the park all of these three volcanoes can be climbed within a day!
Mgahinga National Park can be visited all year long, but the best times are from June to August and December to February. At these times, the forest trails are drier and easier to walk on.
Mgahinga is a gorilla trekking destination but it is also home to other 76 species of mammals, although they are difficult to glimpse in the wild forest vegetation. They include giant forest hogs, bush pigs, forest buffaloes, elephants, bushbucks, golden cats, side striped jackals, black fronted duikers and South African porcupines.
Uganda is much more than a Gorilla destination. The country has beautiful national parks where you can spot the Big 5, enjoy adventure activities and cultural experiences!
