Mhaginga National Park is located on the south-western side of Uganda. It is the smallest park in the country with an area of 34 kilometers square.
This park consists of three slopes of the extinct Virunga Volcanoes (Muhavura, Gahinga, Sabinyo). The climatic changes of these mountains have provided a good refuge for the mountain Gorilla, wild animals, and plants for ages.
Gorilla tracking is the most thrilling activity in the Mhaginga National Park. Gorilla family in this park is called Nyakagezi and it consists of 2 Silverback, 3 adult females, 2 juveniles and 2 infants.
