Mukiza gorilla family open for gorilla trekking
Mukiza gorilla family that broke off from Kyaguliro A is also referred to as Kyaguliro B. This increased the number of gorilla permits in Ruhija sector by 8. Don’t be worried of limited gorilla trekking permits in Uganda for an encounter with the landlords of the thick jungles of Bwindi Impenetrable National Park provided you contact Jewel Safaris in time.
Each time a gorilla family splits, 8 more gorilla tracking permits are made available.
Mukiza gorilla family group also known as Kyaguliro B is found in Ruhija sector of Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. It is led by the dominant silverback Mukiza. The group was formed in May 2016 after splitting from the main Kyaguliro group (Kyaguliro A).
With continuous additions in the near future, this group is composed of 13 individuals including; 1 Silverback, 6 adult females, 2 sub-adults, 1 juvenile and 3 infants. Mukiza group is known for staying deeper in the forest and very rarely gets close to the forest’s peripherals.
Mukiza silverback was one of the silverbacks in the Kyaguliro gorilla family group found in Ruhija sector of Bwindi Impenetrable National Park.
It is assumed that the fights started way back in December 2015 when the two silverbacks fought and split for a short time and reunited shortly. Later in January 2016 following another fight, Mukiza managed to grab 10 members away from the main group to form a new Mukiza gorilla family led by him. You can now track this family.
