Rushegura Group

Rushegura Group situated in the Buhoma region in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest

The Rushegura Group (as well called the R Group) is among the larger Groups of Gorillas

Rushegura Gorilla Group was in 2000 habituated and later opened in 2002 for tourism within the Buhoma region for gorilla tracking.  This Rushegura is a fragment group from Habinyanja group.  It is extremely active within the Buhoma region and covers a broad territory – sometimes going to Batwa village, UWA park-office Bwindi Waterfall and even Buhoma Camp, and such sightings are normally a bonus. These move into the adjacent Banana groves at times. Currently There are 19 Gorillas within the Rushegura Group.
