Bwindi Forest National Park Uganda

Mishaya Gorilla Group

Situated in the Rushaga region of South Bwindi Impenetrable Forest

Mishaya Gorilla Group – separated from the largest Group of Mountain Gorillas in East plus Central Africa; the Nshongi Gorilla Group. This Mishaya Mountain Group:  by July in 2010 a newer habituated Group of mountain Gorillas called the Nshongi – then the biggest group within Bwindi Impenetrable Forest – however similar to several  families sometimes- a family argument arose and 1 of the formerly sub-ordinate Silverbacks – Miyasha led a uprising and split from the major group with close to 8 gorillas.

Mishaya – led his new group of-rebels to the greener pastures within the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest and it’s for that reason that the Rushaga area found in Southern Bwindi Impenetrable Forest has 2 Gorilla safari Groups.

The Rushaga area is a huge location within Bwindi -plus the Mishaya Group is a wonderful group to actually track there.
