Mountain Gorilla Trekking in Mgahinga NP

Mgahinga is the least known and most thrilling location for mountain gorilla trekking. A Ugandan national park sharing a border with the DRC, Mgahinga is a wild place, home to some very wild gorillas. While sightings are not as completely guaranteed, it’s a brilliant destination if you like to hike in untamed jungle.

Trek into muddy Congo Basin landscapes on the trail of a habituated gorilla troop. There are very few other tourists here and you are accompanied by guards, due to the presence of dangerous animals. And when you reach the gorillas the experience is otherworldly.

Stand face to face with a gorilla troop and spend an hour with these marvelous animals. It’s a stunning closeup with the world’s largest primates, an hour full of very intimate and personal moments.
