Habituated gorilla families in Rwanda
There are seven gorilla families available for tourists to visit in Rwanda, with 8 tourists allowed per group. Let us introduce you to Rwanda’s Mountain Gorillas!
This group of 41 gorillas is Rwanda’s largest. This family is the hardest to trek as they tend to range high into the mountains.
Led by the powerful silverback Guhonda, this group is easily accessible.
Meaning ‘peaceful is a family of 17 members. There is a fairly steep climb to reach Amahoro.
- Group 13
When first habituated this group had only 13 members; they are now approximately 25.
This 18-member group migrated from DRC and tend to range far, making it a moderately difficult trek.
Umubano (a family of 11) broke off from the Amahoro group after the dominant silverback was challenged by Charles, now the leader of Umubano.
- This recent group was formed from different families, namely from Group 13 and Sabyinyo.
