Nyakagezi Gorillas Return Home


Uganda Wildlife Authority announces the return of the Mgahinga habituated gorilla group, Nyakagezi, to Mgahinga Gorilla National Park Uganda. This group crossed into Rwanda on 12th November, 2004, and returned on April 23, 2005.

The Nyakagezi group has in the past crossed to either DR Congo or Rwanda into the contiguous “Great Virunga Ecosystem” that straddles the 3 countries and into the National Parks of Virunga on the DR Congo side and Volcanoes on the Rwanda side, only that this time it stayed longer in Rwanda leading to speculation that it was being “held” in Rwanda. The return therefore puts an end to all speculation.
