Raw Wildlife Encounters in partnership with The Jane Goodall Institute Australia and Raw Africa Eco-Tours gives travellers the chance to experience close encounters with gorillas and chimps in the wild while making sure that their travel dollars go to a good cause.
For the second year running, guests spend 15 days witnessing first-hand the interesting and successful projects that are being undertaken in Uganda by The Jane Goodall Institute. Raw travellers will visit the JGI Uganda/Ngamba Chimpanzee Island in the Murchinson Falls National Park, where they will experience close encounters with rhinos, chimpanzees and crocodiles, head off on a chimpanzee trek in the Budongo Forest, and look for the gorillas of Bwindi. Once guests witness these amazing primates, they’ll understand what drove Dr Jane Goodall to dedicate her entire life fighting for their survival. Guests will also visit the inspiring Boomu Women’s Group to gain an understanding of Ugandan culture and how communities live alongside wildlife. For every traveller on this adventure, departing 23 August 2015, a donation is made directly to support the work of The Jane Goodall Institute.
