It was great Joy too welcome the second baby gorilla born by mother Kirungi into the Mubare family yesterday 7th November 2019 three weeks after another baby gorillas was born by Musinza (one of the female gorillas in this group)on 16th October 2019. The sex of Kirungi’s the baby gorillas is yet to be established but for now both mother and the baby Gorilla are in good health.
Mubare Gorilla family is the oldest Gorilla family in Bwindi that had about 18 members under the leadership of Ruhondeeza the dominant silver back before he was dethroned and the group was taken over by another dominant silver back. Mubare group was attacked by a wild unhabituated gorilla family and took away some of its members leaving only five members.
Ruhondeza was frustrated after taking some of his members and serious fights with another black back and left to live in the nearby forest still in Bwindi. He (Ruhondeza) later died in 2013 and was given a decent burial near the park headquarters. You can ask to see where he was buried on your visit to Bwindi after your Gorilla tracking activity.
Mubare gorilla family has a total number of 9 members and has been blessed with two more baby gorillas in just one month! The family is found in the Buhoma area and is available for tracking. The sex of the two baby Gorillas is yet to be established by UWA researchers.
