Mgahinga

Mgahinga lies in the southwestern corner of Uganda enveloped in the Virunga Mountains. It is contiguous with the Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda and the Virunga National Park in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.  The park's hallmark are the three very picturesque extinct volcanoes: Mt Muhavura, Mt Gahinga and Mt Sabinyo.

The forest is home to the endangered mountain gorillas, golden monkey and 12 endemic bird species including the Rwenzori Turaco and Double collared sunbird, Lagdens Bush shrike and Scarlet- tufted Malachite Sunbird.

The main reason most people venture here is for the gorilla trekking but rewarding forest walks and mountain hiking is also available.
