Also known as the Susa B group, the Karisimbi gorilla family broke off from the original Susa “A” because of continuous fights. It has a total of 15 individuals and it resides along the Karisimbi volcano slopes that stands at 4507 meters and features as the highest mountain peak of Rwanda.

This gorilla family can also be trekked by the physically fit tourists because sometimes the gorillas move uphill making it hard to get to them by tourists. This means that you can spend a day full day tracking for these unique creatures.

To make the trekking a little easy, trackers first go to the jungles tracing where the gorillas are and are always able to tell where mountain gorillas would be the next day. If they expect the family to be extremely far, it’s trekking is stopped.
