Fireside Chat with Rich & Matt: Uganda & Its Mountain Gorillas
Pull up a virtual chair around the campfire and join safari guides Rich and Matt on an adventure deep into Uganda, in pursuit of one of Africa’s most fascinating primates: the mountain gorilla. Here in the heart of the continent, this small country offers a microcosm of African habitats and wildlife, delighting safari-goers with plenty of plains game, predators, chimpanzees, and the star of any safari, the mountain gorilla. Matt and Rich introduce us to Nat Hab’s Great Uganda Gorilla Safari, a journey filled with dramatic scenery, friendly people, lush wilderness and charming apes, so wondrously like ourselves in many ways. They will also share experiences and insights from recent trips to Uganda (including Matt’s honeymoon!), with an update on how COVID-19 has impacted the country and its people, and how they are preparing to welcome visitors safely again. Conservation in Uganda, especially for gorillas, depends heavily on ecotourism and the economic infusion it brings—that’s why Nat Hab is excited to get back! Find out what’s in store from these two seasoned Expedition Leaders.
