Mgahinga National Park

Mgahinga National park is famous for Mountain Gorillas situated between Rwanda and Congo border.

The park is located far southwest on the boarder of Rwanda and Congo, 15 kilometers south of Kisoro town in Virunga Mountains which is contiguous with Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda and Virunga National Park in Democratic Republic of Congo.

The park derives its name from “Gahinga” a Kinyarwanda word for a pile of volcanic lava stone heaps around which cultivation is carried out.
