This gorilla group is composed of eleven members and one silverback. It can be tracked within the Karisoke volcano slopes. It is controlled by Bwenge silverback.
The group was created in 2007 at a time he broke away from his original family but other female gorillas joined him. Unfortunately, this gorilla family has experienced most difficult moments in life due to deaths of six infant gorillas.
The group is currently increasing based on the fact that two births have been experienced in the previous years and the ability of their leader. Tracking this gorilla family is however difficult and interested trekkers must be ready to climb for nearly three hours.
Besides, the gorilla trekking paths are at times wet and they can be muddy and steep to hike through slippery slopes. Most interestingly, this gorilla family also appeared in the movie “Gorillas in the Mist.”
