The Gorilla Highlands initiative is about promoting southwestern Uganda and northwestern Rwanda globally, and we have started 2017 well.

Columbus Travel, the second biggest travel magazine in the Netherlands with 45,000 readers, has published a special edition called Travel Bucketlist 2017 with the Gorilla Highlands in it. They asked Dutch celebrities to share their  travel tips, and added some by the editorial board—including Mgahinga Gorilla National Park and Lake Bunyonyi.

Columbus Travel is especially interested in off-the-beaten-track destinations and responsible tourism. Their magazine appears eight times a year, sold in the Netherlands and the Flemish part of Belgium, and there is also a website where you can read their story about our region.
