Hirwa group is found in Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda. After the death of Munyinya the group is led by Uburanga. The group was opened for tourism in July 2006 and named Hirwa in the same year. Munyinya had increased the size of his group by grabbing individuals from surrounding groups such as Sabyinyo, Agashya and Kwitonda. Despite being the newest group on the block, Hirwa kept exhibiting its strength and maintained its status and respect from other gorilla groups in the area. Hirwa group is composed of 11 individuals including 1 Silverback,2 females,1 sub adult female,2 sub-adult males, 4 juveniles and 1 infant. This group is known to have the second ever surviving twins (Isango Gakuru and Isango Gato born to Kabatwa) after the main Susa group.
