MOUNTAIN GORILLAS IN MGAHINGA NATIONAL PARK – UGANDA SAFARI NEWS
Mgahinga Gorilla National Park is positioned on the top of south western Uganda in the astonishing landscape of Virunga volcanoes. It hosts the peaks of the three volcanoes that adjoin others to for the Virunga ranges and these include; Mount Gahinga, Mount Sabyinyo and Mount Muhavura which are also an important attraction for those on Uganda safaris.
The hilly landscape is covered by the lush of green vegetation that has ensured the survival of wild gorillas for many centuries . These gorillas have been considered endangered by the world conservationists and thus requiring keen assistance to help them not to face the extinction. This led to gorilla habituation which eventually resulted into gorilla trekking activity so as to act as an alternative for income generation and in turn ensure their survival. In Mgahinga Gorilla National Park, there is one gorilla family called Nyakagyezi which has 10 members and one silverback named Mark. This group is always encountered by travellers undertaking safaris in Uganda as an alternative to the gorilla tracking in the adjacent Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. This wild gorilla family has a tendency of crossing border to the adjacent Democratic republic of Congo though it tends to have settled.
