Mammals here include majorly the endangered Mountain Gorillas, elephants, buffaloes, giant forest hogs, black-fronted Duikers, bushbucks, leopards to mention but a few. The charming Mountain Gorillas form the highlight of the park, the time and terrain/track taken while looking for these beautiful primates varies according to their movements.
