10 MEMBERS: LAST UPDATED 22/02/2022
Oruzogo group is found in Ruhija tourism sector of Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. The group is headed by the dominant Silverback Bakwate. Oruzugo group is fondly known for foraging and feeding on vegetation dominated by ‘Alchornea hitela’ – a plant locally known as Oruzogo upon which the group’s name originates. Feeding on this plant species makes Oruzogo group so unique because other gorilla groups rarely feed on the same. Oruzogo group whose habituation started in 2008 is composed of 10 individuals including 1 Silverbacks, 4 Black backs, 2 Adult females, 1 Sub-adult, 1 Juveniles and 1 Infant. Oruzogo’s number reduced from 17 to 10 members following a split where Silverback Kasimali left the group with 6 others in June 2021.
