Gorilla trekking safaris and tours in Uganda  is very interesting because it avails visitors the chance to trek the Mubare gorilla group which was named after the beautiful Mubare Hills in which the group was found. At first the group was made up of 18 individual members who were led by one silver back called Ruhondeza. Unluckily the group which had many members started losing its members one by one and by the year 2012 only 5gorilla members were left. The loss of the group members was attributed to number of factors such as death of baby gorillas, death, moving of members to join other groups,
In the year 2012, the Mubare group was attacked by a wild gorilla group who ended up breaking Ruhondeza’s leadership and took away some of the females. The occurrence or the attack forced Old Ruhondeza to take asylum in a nearby community forest where the researchers continued to monitor him, until when lost his life in his sleep on 27 June 2012.
Currently the group has 8 individual members and confirming your gorilla trekking safari in Uganda provides you with maximum opportunities to have one golden hour of interaction between the tourists and the rare gorillas and in the face to face encounter the tourists will come to sweep away the wear they have towards gorillas because the they will come to prove that human beings share 95% of the their behaviors and characteristics with the gorillas.
