image001-icobVisitors tracking the awesome mountain gorillas in the Rushaga and Nkuringo zones of Bwindi Impenetrable National Park’s southern sector will soon have an opportunity to share their experiences instantly with the rest of the world.

The minister of Information,

Communication Technology (ICT) Dr. Ruhakana Rugunda has promised to work with the Uganda Communications Commission (UCC) to ensure setting up infrastructure to enable internet availability. During the International Community of Banyakigezi (ICOB) Uganda chapter convention in Kisoro in late December, Dr. Rugunda said that UCC will extend internet services to important but hard to reach areas.

He was responding to a concern from the UWA Executive Director, Dr. Andrew Seguya that excited trackers in Rubuguri, Rushaga and Nkuringo have to rush to Kisoro and Kabale towns to communicate with their relatives and friends after interacting with the rare mountain gorillas. Dr. Rugunda said investing in tourism was the way to go, given the unique endowments in Kigezi which include two gorilla national parks, the Virunga volcanoes, the Kigezi Wildlife reserve with climbing lions in Ishasha sector and the unique climate.

Earlier, Dr.Seguya also implored the entrepreneurs in Kigezi region to consider investing in tourism training institutions, tour operators business, specialized tour vehicles and improved crafts if they are to tap into the vast tourism potential.
