New Gorilla Group in Bwindi

Classic Africa Safaris of Uganda are pleased to announce that there is now a new gorilla group open for trekking in the Kisoro / 'Clouds Lodge' area. Permits are very, very limited for 2011 and we advise that travellers begin planning for 2012 now.

The new group is called 'Mishaya' and it currently has 9 members, including one dominant silverback, adult females, as well as several juveniles and infants. In July 2010, the second ranking silverback called ‘Mishaya’ broke away from the main Nshongi group, taking with him 8 other individuals.

There are now 3 gorilla groups open to tourist trekking in this area:
(1) Nkuringo
(2) Nshongi
(3) Mishaya

There are currently four gorilla groups on the Buhoma/Gorilla Forest Camp side of Bwindi that are available for trekking. Read more about the existing gorilla groups (please note Mishaya has not yet been added to this list).
