Nkuringo name came from the famous Nkuringo gorilla family which is the most interesting gorilla family looked out for by many visitors visiting this region of Bwindi. Nkuringo mountain gorilla family broke off from the Nshongi family located in the Rushaga sector. Upon breaking off, the moved to the place currently called Nkuringo region and this family group was and is under the leadership of one lead silverback called Bahati. Nkuringo gorilla family group is made up of about 19 members controlled by dominant silver back Bahati who plans and determines everything and offers protection to the family group members. Apart from Nkuringo gorilla family group, this region also has other family groups like: Bikingi gorilla family with about 15 members with 1 Silverback gorilla and was declared free for tracking in 2012, Bushaho family composed of about 10 to 18 gorillas with 1 silverback gorilla and there several mountain gorilla families.

Initially, top track mountain gorillas in this sector costed US$ 600 but it was hiked recently to US$ 700 which is relatively expensive but incomparable to the kind of experiences and memories gained after an encounter with these landlords of Bwindi impenetrable forest national park.
