Nyakagezi is a place in Mgahinga Gorilla National Park (MGNP) where there is a lot of sumptuous food attractive to the gorillas. Nyakagezi family is one of the easiest to track given the fact that it prefers a narrow home range for feeding, nesting, relaxing and recreation.

 

The group is composed of three silver backs, 2 adult females, 2 black backs and 2 infants.
Its home range extends up to national frontiers with Rwanda. No wonder the family at times pays a visit to their Volcanoes National Park counterparts in Rwanda.

The family is led by Silverback Mark assisted by Mafia, Ndungutse and Bugingo. Rukundo is the sole Black back,Nshuti an adult female plus two babies namely Nshuti baby and Fred. Fred was named so in 2010 when a veterinary doctor, Fred, attached to Mountain Gorilla Veterinary Project worked hard to save it from a life threatening wire snare.
The tracking permits are usually sold at the park offices in Kisoro town and Ntebeko the park head office .Guides on the ground say the group is playful and interesting that it occasionally attracts repeat visitors.
