Just one Tweet at E-Tourism Frontier’s annual conference in Cape Town led to Nomad having the opportunity of having 6 epic travel bloggers on our Gorilla Encounters tour in 2013.
If there was ever anything that you wanted to know about having a magical encounter with one of Africa’s last remaining mountain gorillas’s, now is your chance to find out!
Tomorrow (9th February), eight travel bloggers will be heading out on Nomad’s Gorilla Encounter tour… in actual fact, two of the bloggers started their journey in Kenya a few days ago on the Masai Mara and Gorillas tour and will be meeting with the rest of the group in Kampala tonight.
Please be sure to follow, like, tweet, share, tag and enjoy the posts and pictures coming from our travel bloggers in the heart of Uganda.
Below is a short biography of Nomad’s Gorilla Trekking Travel Blogger Team! Catch their updates on #nomadgorillas on our Facebook page, Instagram and Twitter account.
