Sabyinyo Gorilla Family is made up of 8 mountain gorilla individuals. It inhabits the gentle slopes of the Sabyinyo volcano that Rwanda shares with Uganda. This is among the easily accessed gorilla families in the Volcanoes National Park. It has the biggest silverback gorilla called Guhonda within the whole of the Volcanoes National Park area.

Being the biggest and obviously stronger, Guhonda is the dominant silverback of the Sabyinyo group and has for a long time managed to keep its major rival silverback Ryango in isolation from the major group.

The Sabyinyo gorilla family mainly has three female mountain gorillas, 2 youthful gorillas and a young mountain gorilla.

Tourists can track this group around Mount Sabyinyo and Mount Gahinga.
