Meet a rebellious teenager now master of all he surveys, and see him in his element. Learn the story of an ambitious silverback that chose a new path and came into his own.
This group was once part of the Amahoro group, which split into two, Umubano being the smaller offshoot. Normally, in a group with more than one silverback, when the leader dies, the group is passed on to the next in line, and the members become his subjects.
This was not the case with Charles, the Umubano leader. After the death of the leading Amahoro silverback, Charles refused to submit to the next in line. Instead, he left the group with two females, forming one of his own.
A young and ambitious silverback, he has been successful in maintaining his group and gaining more females in a short time. There are now 13 members in his family, and he, as the silverback, is the happiest and the strongest of them all.
