Kwita Izina 25 Naming Ceremony

September 6

Join us for the ultimate celebration of life as newborn baby gorillas are named during the 15th hosting of Kwita Izina in Kinigi, Volcanoes National Park.

The ceremony of giving a name to a newborn baby, commonly known as ‘Kwita Izina’, has been part of Rwandan culture for centuries.

The name attributed to a baby gorilla plays a significant role in the ongoing programme of monitoring each individual gorilla in its family group and habitat.

This year we expect to name 25 gorillas.
