Sabinyo Family

Sabyinyo family

Sabyinyo family of gorilla found in volcano national park comprises of 9 members that are frequently found in the gentle foothills of Mt. Sabyinyo and Mt Mgahinga.  Sabyinyo group is one of the closest groups normally found at the edges of the park therefore easily accessed and allocated by the trackers for visitors to trek.

 Sabyinyo group is led by the dominant silver back which was oldest, biggest and obviously stronger compared to the other two silver backs and other gorillas in the group. The group is very common for its giant silver back called Guhonda which is the largest silver back in the park weighing about 220 kg   and it has kept its main challenger, Ryango away from the family to remain as a dominant silver back.

 It has got 3 female mountain gorilla with 2 youthful mountain gorillas and a young mountain gorilla. Sabyinyo group of gorilla is such an impressive family that everybody would wish to visit. First of all it involves interesting activities like hiking in the dense vegetation and forested slopes of Mt Sabyinyo and Gahinga that gave us an incredible experience about gorilla that I personally will live to remember.
