Mgahinga Gorilla National Park is located in southwestern Uganda on the border with Congo and Rwanda. Covering an area of about 33.7 sq kilometres, the park is a habitat for man's closest, the mountain gorillas which roam about the whole forest in search of food.
The Batwa Trail
For generations, Mgahinga’s dense forests were home to the indigenous Batwa - hunter-gatherers and fierce warriors who depended on the forest for shelter, food and medicine. Now they lead visitors through the forests and introduce them to their old home - and the techniques they used to survive in it.
