The term "Gahinga," which refers to the mounds of volcanic stones removed from farms at the base of the volcanoes, is used locally to refer to the park. Elephants, big forest hogs, bush pigs, bushbacks, buffalos, and leopards are just a few of the 76 creatures that Mgahinga is home to.

Experience silver and gold!

The three conical extinct volcanoes that make up Mgahinga’s most notable features are a part of the magnificent Virunga Range, which borders Rwanda, Uganda, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Mgahinga is a part of the much larger Virunga Conservation Area, which also comprises these nations’ neighboring parks. The peaks of the volcanoes form a spectacular backdrop to this stunning environment, while their slopes are home to different ecosystems and biological species.

At a height ranging between 2,227m and 4,127m, Mgahinga Gorilla National Park is perched high in the clouds. As suggested by its name, it was established to safeguard the endangered golden monkey as well as the rare mountain gorillas who live in its extensive forests.
