Gorillas also belong to the order of primates. They share 98.4 of their genetic material with humans. Gorillas the largest of the great Apes are divided into three sub species that include the western lowland gorillas (Gorilla gorilla gorilla) and the eastern lowland gorillas (Gorilla gorilla graueri). The eastern and western lowland gorillas were identified for science in 1847 and 1877 respectively. The third sub specie – the Mountain Gorilla (Gorilla gorilla beringei)was identified for science purposes in the year 1903 and has gone on to become Uganda Safari star attraction.
A chain of eight volcanoes known as the Virunga Volcanoes runs through a western section of the Rift Valley, forming part of the border between Uganda, Democratic Republic of Congo (formerly Zaire) and Rwanda. These spectacular mountains and the nearby Bwindi Impenetrable National Park in Uganda are the last refuges of the most endangered of the gorilla subspecies, the mountain gorilla. Only about 720 of these Mountain Gorillas remain.
