Gorillas In Our Midst
We're Going Gorilla!
We all know that the phrase "A Once In A Lifetime Deal" is often used to describe something that occurs daily, like buying a car. That once in a lifetime deal is available every day. Over the years the Walking Connection has refrained from using phrases like this so you do not see "deals" anywhere in our trip descriptions or website. Until today.
Today, we are announcing, and you are receiving a private invitation to join Gene and I on a special departure to Uganda on our Great Ape Adventure. We'll experience highly endangered Gorillas, spend time with a chimpanzee troop, and experience Uganda's rare tree climbing lions. Our itinerary is more than two years in the making and is curated by Jo Ann.
As the pandemic lessens its grip, global travel is slowly coming back to life. With it, the demand to visit and experience these highly endangered species is already at record levels. In simple terms, there are very few gorillas in the wild and the land permits to visit them are very limited. Their habitat is under constant pressure, they are close to extinction, and they are in really remote places making lodge accommodations both rare and expensive.
When Jo Ann decided that 2023 was the year we would travel to Uganda, she recognized that prices for accommodations and permits would be increasing and availability would soon evaporate. So she locked in 2022 pricing and secured permits for a small group or 12 guests to join us on this "Once In A Lifetime" adventure. This trip requires a high level of fitness and the hikes and treks are rated as aggressive.
