This family mainly comprises of 11 individuals and 1 silverback. It can be tracked within the Karisoke volcano slopes. It is led by Bwenge silverback. Bwenge group was established in 2007 at a time when Bwenge split off from his original family and other females joined him.

However, the group faced most difficult moments in life after the deaths of six infants. 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.

The fascinating thing about this group is that, it also appeared in the movie “Gorillas in the Mist!”. Getting to this gorilla family is also a little challenging because it involves a hike of about 2 to 3 hours through the trails and steep slopes. The trekking paths are at times wet making it muddy and slippery hence a big challenge for one to hike through the steep slopes at the same time.
