Mountain Gorilla Facts In Africa

  • Gorillas have a well developed social structure, forming stable family groups in which the dominant male keeps his position for years.
  • Gorillas are mainly herbivorous or vegetarian and spend almost half of the day feeding on stems, bamboo shoots, and a variety of fruits, supplemented with bark and invertebrates.
  • Group size is usually 5-10 individuals, but can vary from 2 to over 50 members. According to group size, habitat quality and food availability, a group’s home range may vary from 5 to over 30km², with frequent overlap between group ranges.
  • They are stocky animals with broad chests and shoulders, large hands, and forearms that are much shorter than the upper arm. The face is black and hairless, with small eyes that are close together and large, prominent nostrils.
  • Adult males that stay in a group are generally the offspring of the dominant male and eventually will take over leadership. If a male leaves a group, he wanders alone for a number of years, then sometimes establishes a range next to or overlapping that of his old group.
  • As a general rule, female gorillas leave their group at maturity to join other groups or single males, although cases of females reproducing in their original groups are known.
  • Females become sexually mature at 7-8 years old, but do not start to breed until several years later. Males mature later than females, with few breeding before the age of 15 years.
  • High infant mortality, a long gestation (8.5 months), a tendency to single births, and a prolonged period of maternal care mean that, on average, only one baby is reared in a 4-6 year period. Females generally give birth to only three or four surviving young during their reproductive life.
  • The mortality rate for gorillas less than one year old is high, but for adults the rate is only 5%. In the wild, they might live to be 40 years old.
  • You can visit gorillas at any time the best time for gorilla trekking is the long dry season, when it’s not as slippery underfoot.
  • National park permits need to be booked well in advance, particularly for gorilla walks, it’s far easier to get your tour operator to organise them.
  • Due to conservation purposes, eight visitors are allowed to visit gorillas per day per family and every group is allowed to spend 1 hour with gorillas.
