Amahoro is the Rwandan world meaning peace.

This group is the most peaceful gorilla family that lives on a gentle slopes of the Virunga Mountains. The dominant silverback (Ubumwe) is indeed very peaceful and thus the name.

This family comprises of 17 individuals, 1 silverback, 2 black back (sexually mature male mountain gorillas), 5 adult females, two sub adult males, 2 juveniles and five babies. However, the peace in this gorilla family also came at a cost.

The Ubumwe silverback gorilla in this group is most gentle silverback but unfortunately he lost his family members to Charles in the Umubano gorilla group.

Hiking through this group is a bit strenuous but the hike comes with encounters of these impressive wild creatures in their natural habitat.
