Muyambi Gorilla Family


The Nkuringo Gorilla Family

Muyambi gorilla family: The family consists of 7 members with the leader being Muyambi, the silverback. We find this family in the Buhoma Sector of Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. Muyambi gorilla family is an addition in the park since April 2020.

Muyambi, the famous silverback of the family was once a member of Mubare gorilla family. This was the first gorilla family to be trekked in the park. Muyambi was formed in 2019 after splitting with Mubare gorilla family and the trekking was first done in 2019. This was very encouraging to the Muyambi gorilla family that is, welcoming a new born infant.

About the family

This is the newest group in Buhoma region of Bwindi (since early 2019). Additionally, it consists of six members. Muyambi was an adult family member of Mubare family and it split away from the family to form another group called Muyambi group now.
