What is Gorilla Highlands Experts, and How to Join?

Gorilla Highlands Experts are 20+ specialists with ample experience from the Gorilla Highlands, a region shared by Rwanda, Uganda and DR Congo. We lead a global community of travellers interested in responsible tourism and prepare unique online resources and events.

We will help you fully enjoy our region and give you a chance to support the work of people in three countries whose livelihood has been taken away by the Covid-19 crisis. Click here for an in-depth and personal explanation.

Once you sign up for our community, you will start getting a brief monthly newsletter to keep you updated. If you wish to extend your membership past the complimentary one month, you are welcome to make a donation according to your pocket. The membership tier will be stated on the certificate you receive by email, but otherwise there is no difference in your benefits. For the rest of 2021, every member gets access to:

• monthly digital magazine based on the Daily Dose
• weekly Live Q&A with our experts — the basis for the SEE AFRICA BREATHE AFRICA podcast
• video-based expert In-Sights that introduce the region
• travel and other advice in specialised online member groups
• invitation to our member-only trip, the Gorilla Highlands Mega Trek

Each of the four buttons below will take you to a secure environment to make a one-time 2021 donation with your Mastercard, Visa or Amex card. After your click it may take a second before a payment box opens over the screen. In case you are facing difficulties with your transaction getting approved, that is probably your bank being overprotective — they may need to be told that nothing is suspicious about you sending money to Africa. If you are a national of one of the region’s countries, see our special rates and Mobile Money options.

Guests, volunteers and partners of the Gorilla Highlands Initiative and Edirisa (see below) receive long-term access to all our services without any donation made — though any contribution is of course very much appreciated.
