Amazing experience with Mgahinga gorillas!

Mgahinga Gorilla National Park is good for people who want to make last minute arrangements for seeing the gorillas. We arrived in the evening and had a night at Chameleon Hill Lodge at Lake Mutanda with the most beautiful views of the Lake Mutanda and great Virunga mountains. This view is unbeatable!!We arranged the gorilla tracking at Mgahinga National Park that same evening, and went out tracking the gorillas the morning after!

Wildlife encounter like no other

Visiting the mountain gorillas has been my life-long dream, and thanks to KWSS, the experience was thrilling and full of wonder for me, my husband, and two teen sons. We walked for about 1 hour and spent 1 hour observing 10 gorillas grazing, climbing, playing, relaxing, and generally doing what they like to do. One of the gorillas actually approached my husband's camera to touch the microphone. The gorillas are incredibly gentle, human-like, a... read more

Go for the gorillas

Views: 520 Visited: Jun 2014 Reviewed: Jul 27, 2014

We visited this park after visiting Volcanoes in Rwanda. Its close proximity to Rwanda allowed us to add this on. I really enjoyed this small park. It was more personal, it had AMAZING bird life and the views of the volcanoes were unparalleled.
I highly recommend this park if you want to see gorillas and golden monkeys. You will not be disappointed. read more

The Unplanned hike : Mgahinga 360 degrees

Views: 785 Visited: Feb 2013 Reviewed: Apr 26, 2013

The park takes its name from "Gahinga" the local word for the piles of volcanic stones at the foot of the volcanoes. We came to view the mountain gorrilas, but one of the locals advised us that most family of gorillas in Mgahinga like to split their time in neighbouring Rwanda and Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC)and it was rare to find them in the park.

The only option we had was to visit the only habituated gorilla group in Mgahinga kno... read more

Mgahinga National Park

For all the years I had been in boarding schools with very strict rules and regulations. So joining the university was one of my dreams come true because there was no one to control my movements. The very first long trip I took was to Mgahinga national park which is located in the far south of western Uganda. We moved under the umbrella of the students association from my home area. The ten hour drive from Kampala wa... read more
