The Gorilla Orphans Project

The Senkwekwe Centre is the world’s only care centre for orphaned mountain gorillas.

The Senkwekwe Centre exists at the Park headquarters in Rumangabo, an area characterised by expansive and safe lush forest teeming with diverse wildlife.

The Centre also facilitates the rehabilitation of orphaned eastern lowland gorillas confiscated from animal traffickers. Once rehabilitated, the animals are transferred to the GRACE facility for eastern lowlands gorillas.
