Majestic Announce Rwanda Gorilla Experiences

July 29, 2019 Tour Operator No Comments Email Email

Leading eco-travel company Majestic Whale Encounters has today announced it will diversify into additional wildlife experiences, launching a Rwanda Gorilla trekking experience this November.

The African adventure will focus on small group experiences, with just six people at a time able to take the trek through the Rwandan jungle for face-to-face encounters with gorillas in the wild. Unlike any other wildlife encounter, the Rwanda gorilla experience includes a jungle canopy walk, chimp trek, and two gorilla treks across a period of 7 days, taking in the Nyungwe Forest National Park and Volcanoes National Park.

Already known for their unique and eco-led tours that take small groups around the world to swim with both humpbacks and orcas in their natural habitats, Founder of Majestic Whale Encounters, Carmen Ellis, says, the company’s expansion into land based animal encounters is a logical step for the business for several reasons.

“Our core goal is to educate and raise awareness of the animals that we interact with, and their plight,” she explains. “Whilst the ocean and whales in particular are at the heart of the business, the need to further expand understanding of other animal populations that are at risk is driving us to diversify our offering. We are committed to educating travellers about the impact that we have on our environment, and the best way to do that is to bring people face to face with what it is we stand to lose. There is nothing quite like a face to face encounter with an incredible animal in their own habitat to really make people understand what is at stake. Nothing can prepare you for the emotion and exhilaration that you feel when you encounter a gorilla in the African jungle, and nothing can make you want to preserve them more.”

Pricing for the all-inclusive trip (sans international flights) starts from $12,495 USD.

Guests will be accommodated at One & Only Nyungwe House and Bisate Lodge.
