The Rushegura Gorilla Group

The Rushegura Gorilla Group

    Group Name: Rushegura Gorilla Family

    Group Leader: Makara Silverback

    Group Number: 16 (June 2016)

    Group Location: Buhoma Sector in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest.

    Neighbours: Habinyanja & Mubare Gorilla Groups

    The Rushegura Gorilla Group is one of the larger groups (16) in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest and in the Buhoma area of the park.  Gorilla Tracking time for this group tends to be shorter in recent times, since they have stayed around the park headquarters area.  This group at times ventures out of the park and we had a group on safari who had this group outside of their tent during the night until the next morning to their delight.  They were simply amazed to say the least.

    Two different recent clients insisted on staying three nights at Gorilla Forest Camp because they were both hoping that the visit with the American photographer they saw on YouTube just might be replicated and they would see the gorilla group there.

    Those wanting a shorter Trek is a large gorilla group and can be often tracked in a shorter time than 5 hours.  There is however no guarantee to that as the gorillas may choose to venture off and it will take a longer time to track them.

    Like many groups in the Park – the Rushegura Gorilla Group is another splinter group, this one from the Habinyanja Gorilla Group.

    Buhoma is an exciting place with three great gorilla groups of which the Rushegura Group is one.
