Meet some of the friendliest and most playful gorillas to roam our mountain forests. The Amahoro family is an adorable bunch, so clear up some megabytes, because you’ll have plenty of footage to store!
The Amahoro group became available to the public in 2000, and it was the largest mountain gorilla family at the time. Amahoro means ‘peace’. This name was chosen as a symbol of the community’s conservation efforts, but also due to the personality of the group members. The Amahoro silverback is very relaxed and approachable. There are 18 members, including several young silverback and black back gorillas. These are very active and playful gorillas, and they like to show off to visitors. You’ll be surprised to see such a peaceful and loving family!
