Mgahinga Gorilla National Park

Overview

Bordering Rwanda and Congo, Mgahinga Gorilla National Park is located in the south west region of Uganda. Mgahinga encompasses 3 extinct volcanoes and 3 broad swamps. Spread over 33.7km2 land, it is Uganda's smallest National Park. Mgahinga is one of two areas in Uganda in which mountain gorillas can be explored; the other being Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. The park takes its name from "Gahinga" – the local word for the heaps of volcanic stones cleared from farmland at the foot of the volcanoes. The park has one habituated gorilla grouping, however, these now and then crosses the park's border and venture into Rwanda. There are 76 mammal species recorded in the park, including bisons, elephants, bushbucks, and monkeys. Around 115 bird species have been also been documented in the park, including Rwenzorituraco, Rwenzorituraco, Rwenzoribatis, Rwenzori double-collared sunbird, collared apalis, mountain masked apalis, Archer's ground robin, stripe-breasted tit, blue-headed sunbird, regal sunbird, strange weaver, montane nightjar, and Grauer's swamp warbler. This park was at one time a home to the mountain gorillas, however, they have relocated to Rwanda in the Volcanoes. As the park is known for its wildlife, the park also has an enormous social criticalness, specifically for the indigenous Batwa dwarfs. This clan of hunter gatherers was the forest’s "first individuals".
