Travelscope continues its winning run on American television by being nominated for not one but three Emmys after episodes including their feature on the endangered mountain gorillas in Rwanda! During their filming they stayed at Volcanoes Virunga Lodge and experienced one of our safaris, meeting the local community and visiting the Agashya gorilla group!
We are delighted to share the news that Joseph Rosendo's Travelscope has received three nominations in the 39th Annual Daytime Entertainment Emmy Awards. The three categories are 'Outstanding Special Class Directing' (Joseph Rosendo), 'Outstanding Achievement in Single Camera Photography' (Jon Speyers and Zebediah Smith) and 'Outstanding Achievement in Sound Mixing, Live Action' (A Tad Chamberlain and Jason Grigg).
The show was previously awarded an Emmy in 2011 for 'Single Camera Photography' and Joseph Rosendo, host, writer and director of the show is delighted to have been professionally recognised at the Emmys for a third consecutive year, saying 'We're thrilled and feel privileged to be honoured once again by our industry peers. We are grateful for the Academy's acknowledgement of our individual and team creative efforts.'
Needless to say, we are wishing the Travelscope team the best of luck for June 17th, when the Emmys are being held, and hope that we will have more to celebrate from their stay at Virunga Lodge!

Tracking chimpanzees in their natural habitat, as they swing from the branches in the canopy high above the forest floor is nothing short of exhilarating. The chimps effortlessly cross and scamper through the trees above the gorge, and visitors on the other hand must cross the river using natural bridges in order to keep up with the chimps. So although the walk usually lasts only 2–3 hours, descending the steep gorge and crossing the log bridges over the river requires some agility and fitness.
Chimpanzee tracking is also available in nearby Kalinzu, a forest reserve 30 minutes drive from Kyambura Gorge Lodge where there is a community of about 40 habituated chimpanzees.
