The Gorilla Highlands (; GH) bootcamp is intended to prepare and motivate the team that is expected to take GH to the next level. It was originally envisaged as a team-building exercise for MYL Holdings, the GH agents in Kigali, but we have decided to open it up to other multimedia/marketing people interested in GH. Whoever wishes to join should send an email to ASAP.

The bootcamp will take place at Edirisa on Lake Bunyonyi ( from Saturday 19/11 to (at least) Wednesday 23/11. Edirisa will sponsor dormitory-style accommodation, staff meals and all activities.

The plan is to prepare:

– General GH marketing plan (based on the already-existing Digital Media Plan that will be emailed to all participants)

– Social media strategy and calendar

– Everything needed for bi-monthly GH talk-shows in Kigali

– Stories for the GH blog

We want to give in-depth coverage to the following GH projects:

– Video Map

– Pocket Guide

– Interactive eBook

– Regional booking system for Rwanda and Uganda

But, above all, we want to expose everyone to the Gorilla Highlands Trails, our system of guided trips.
