UMI in the Jungle trip a success for G Adventures and agents

June 29, 2017 Photo Gallery No Comments Email Email

The UMI in the Jungle winners have returned from what has been described as “the trip of a lifetime”.

The winners, who were made up of a mix of agents from across Australia and New Zealand, travelled to East Africa as part of the G Adventures’ Culture & Wildlife of Uganda and Rwanda trip – the grand prize for this year’s Uber Massive Incentive, UMI in the Jungle.

It was a fantastic trip that truly celebrated the wildlife of the region; the agents spotted elephants and lions as part of a Queen Elizabeth National Park wildlife safari drive, and – the main attraction, of course – trekked for gorillas in Volcanoes National Park.

The agents have returned from the 10-day trip more eager than ever to sell G Adventure’s East Africa product to their customers.

Queensland Global Purpose Specialist (GPS) Cam McDonell accompanied the agents on the trip and believes it was the best agent fam trip yet.

“We wanted to take the agents out of their comfort zone on this UMI trip – and that’s exactly what we did. The sense of excitement from the agents was palpable, it was clear they wanted to experience all that Uganda and Rwanda had to offer.”

Steph Jones, from STA Travel, said it was “the best trip” she had ever been on.

“Forget the beach break you do every year – if you really want to experience life, you need to get out of your comfort zone. The Culture & Wildlife of Uganda & Rwanda tour is an experience that will stay with travellers forever.”

Adrian Piotto, Managing Director for G Adventures Australia and New Zealand has confirmed UMI will be coming back, even bigger and better in 2018.

“We love to reward our supporting agents, and it’s inspiring to hear their feedback and insights. That’s why we plan on continuing these kind of incentives, so watch this space!”

The Culture & Wildlife of Uganda and Rwanda trip is a part of G Adventure’s Jane Goodall Collection, a selection of 20 incredible, wildlife-focused tours endorsed by world-renowned primatologist Dr. Jane Goodall. The small-group adventures give travellers unique opportunities to see some of the planet’s most fascinating animals, while at the same time, respecting their freedom.
