Virunga Promotion Success
During the last two weeks of Mai and the first week of June we had a promotion in Virunga National Park, during which all permits where half price! This lead to a significant increase in visitors from this region, including a significant number of visitors from Kigali. Both Mountain Gorillas and the Lava Lake were visited by a total of 191 visitors in the short 17 day period, a very good number for these low season months. With June well underway we now see the tourism numbers increasing steadily and we expect large numbers (about 1000 visitors for both summer months).
