Gorilla, Matoke, Safari
Matoke Tours has launched the first virtual reality travel
brochure allowing travelers to experience a complete virtual Ugandan safari.
Come eye-to-eye with mountain gorillas, including a close-up encounter with a
curious gorilla grabbing the camera.

Matoke Tours is announcing the travel industry’s first true
virtual reality travel brochure designed to be experienced in your home or on
the go with an Android app. The “Virtual Gorilla” app provides six unique
chapters that provide a stunning experience of a trip through Uganda.
Track gorillas in the Bwindi rainforest, explore Uganda in a
hot air balloon, and traverse land and water on safari. Become fully immersed
in the beauty of Uganda and meet “Big Sam,” your tour guide who

real-world lodges where you can spend the night on your follow-up vacation.

Feel the emotion of an
authentic travel experience
According to Wim Kok, director of Matoke Tours Uganda, the
VR experience offers many benefits for travellers who are considering Uganda as
a destination: “This app enables us to convey the intensity and emotion of the
travel experience before the journey has even started. Travellers are then
better able to decide which excursions they want to book.”

Android availability
first, with iOS experiences to come soon
The VR experience from Matoke Tours is designed to work with
Android smartphones and multiple VR systems. For the best user experience, we
suggest the Samsung Gear VR or Google Cardboard VR device designed for
smartphones. Begin your virtual experience by placing your smartphone in the
viewer and firing up the Virtual Gorilla app.

Users of Apple’s iPhone can expect a similar experience in
February when the technology is expected to become compatible with iOS devices.

Starting today, all users can enjoy the 360° videos on the
Matoke Tours website that provide a look at experiences and lodges.
