Mgahinga Gorilla National Park is situated on the slopes of Mts. Muhabura and Gahinga in the southwestern corner of Uganda, bordering Rwanda and the Congo.
A joint commission has been set up by Uganda, Rwanda and the Congo to protect the mountain gorilla in the Virunga Mountains where the borders of the three countries meet.
Gorillas are much less likely to be sighted here than in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park. They spend their time in Rwanda and the Congo (especially in the dry season) as well as in Uganda.
Other wildlife in this 12-square-mile (34-km²) reserve includes blue monkey, black and white colobus monkey, buffalo and bushbuck.
