We visited this lovely park to see the Golden Monkeys. The day started with a performance from a local heritage group. Then, we headed up on foot with our team of guides to locate the Golden Monkeys by foot. Total hiking time was about 4 hours at a leisurely pace. We also stayed with the Monkeys for an hour and stopped to have a packed lunch as well. Porters are available to bring your packed lunch and you are encouraged to use them to contribute to the local community. The Golden Monkeys are adorable. We were able to capture some fantastic photos too. The trackers and guides really care for this endangered animal. The Park itself seems very dedicated to them as well.

We did Golden monkey Trekking in Mgahinga NP, the park is stunning with beautiful forests and views, the Primary forest is amazing as well as the Bamboo zone, we had a great experience trekking and photographing the Golden Monkeys, it is also a great park for Bird watching. We hired a porter to assist with our bags and he was great and really helpfull.

Only one hour to trek to the gorillas. The first 15 minutes of the walk was difficult uphill and the rest was quite easy. We saw the group with 3 silverbacks. Our guide, porters and guards were excellent and extremely helpful. Mgahinga much easier that Bwindi and was a real surprise. Bucket list stuff for those who seek adventure and love nature and wildlife.

Hiking to see the golden monkeys in the rain is definitely not easy, but it's worth it. Make sure that you have good hiking shoes, and I would recommend gaiters. Expect to slip and slide if it's been raining, and make sure to use a hiking stick.

My review focuses on the physical aspects/tips/recommendations as it goes without saying how amazing this experience is especially when you get your first glimpse of a silverback.
It is strenuous, despite being one of the easier trails. We started out at 2.500m and after about 15 minutes I couldn't breathe - altitude sickness. Fortunately we had an inhaler and I ended up using it throughout the trek to be able to breathe.
We spent 1.5 hours with trackers going ahead to find the gorillas and then the 4 hours with the gorillas went very quickly. It took then at least 4 hours to get back down and that was the difficult part. The group was dispersed and the terrain was very steep. They eat and move faster than you think!

There were 6 of us in total and we had all different levels of fitness. The guide Patrick was focused on safety and there was a large group of rangers, trackers and then the porters. Our porters (Ignatius and Gloria) were outstanding.

Tips: No tripod (the terrain is so steep you won't be able to use it)
Bring:
waterproof overjackets and trousers
leech socks
head net as there are biting insects
gloves that cover your wrists
walking poles

You will slip, you will fall, you will shed tears, but you will have the experience of a lifetime.

Find out in advance which sector you will be doing and prepare yourself physically and mentally. I rented a static bike 2 months before to get my fitness levels up and it really helped! Good luck to you.

The volcanoes are spectacular and hiking to see the gorillas was a great experience. The views are wonderful and make the walk up very worthwhile!

This place is where dreams come true , i opted to do the Gorilla habituation instead of the normal trek and i am so glad i did .Spending 4 hours with these magnificent animals was something i will never ever forget
We arrived with our guides at the entrance to our hike (not the park gate) where we hooked up with our 6 trackers and two armed guards.. Off we went on a hike that started flat until we had walked for about 2 KMS
then , straight up to an elevation of 2800 meters after about one hour we found the gorillas and the adventure began, These Gorillas are not habituated which means they do not sit back and do a photo shoot lol.. you have to follow them as they move a very challenging but awarding experience all made possible by the men with the machetes who i thank so much for making this as unreal as it was

In this pandemic time tourists are few. I was treated to a solo tour with Jerome, who is an excellent and knowledgeable guide there. Along with the golden monkey trackers and two security rangers we had a memorable day with the monkeys.(I had seen gorillas in Bwindi, though you can do that in Mgahinga too). I would recommend taking a porter if the budget allows ($15 minimum), not so much because one is needed (the terrain for the golden monkeys was not as rugged as for the gorillas at Bwindi, though it depends on where the animals are I guess), but because the porters are really struggling right now and it's good to help out the local community. With the monkeys, the team made a great effort to ensure that I could see and photograph them easily. Mgahinga is a beautiful place and at the moment you are likely to have the sheer joy of having it all to yourself, or nearly so. Highly recommended, especially now.

We chose Mgahinga as opposed to Bwindi because we had heard it was less busy and provided for smaller groups on the trek itself. It was just my husband and I that morning, yet we had two porters, two rangers and a lead guide. The gorillas were not close to the ranger station and we had to hike through a community, but I loved the experience of hiking through the farms as we went up the mountain. I would not have wanted to miss a minute of the hike itself! We were able to spend an hour with 7 gorillas - two silverbacks, a m.omma with a 4 month old, another female and two younger (4 and 6) gorillas. We watched one of the silverbacks play fight with the 4 year old and watched the baby nurse. The experience was amazing!!!
