There are also 346 species of birds and over 200 species of butter ies. Gorilla tracking is the major tourist activity in Bwindi with four groups currently available daily for tourists. The Mubare group (ten members, one silverback) was opened for tourism in 1993, and the Habinyanja
group (eighteen members, two silverbacks) was ready in July 1998. The Rusheguru group (ten members, one silverback) was opened in July 2002, while the Nkuringo group (nineteen members, two silverbacks) was opened for tourism in April 2004. More groups have been habituated in the past few years creating opportunity for more tourists to trek per day.
