The winners, who were made up of a mix of agents from across Australia and New Zealand, travelled to East Africa as part of the G Adventures’ Culture & Wildlife of Uganda and Rwanda trip – the grand prize for this year’s Uber Massive Incentive, UMI in the Jungle.
The 10 ‘trip of a lifetime’ days celebrated the wildlife of the region, and the agents are more eager than ever to sell G Adventure’s East Africa product to their customers after spotting elephants and lions as part of a Queen Elizabeth National Park wildlife safari drive, and – the main attraction – trekking for gorillas in Volcanoes National Park.
Steph Jones, from STA Travel, said it was “the best trip” she had ever been on.
“Forget the beach break you do every year – if you really want to experience life, you need to get out of your comfort zone. The Culture & Wildlife of Uganda & Rwanda tour is an experience that will stay with travellers forever.”
Queensland Global Purpose Specialist (GPS) Cam McDonell accompanied the agents on the trip and believes it was the best agent fam trip yet.
“We wanted to take the agents out of their comfort zone on this UMI trip – and that’s exactly what we did. The sense of excitement from the agents was palpable, it was clear they wanted to experience all that Uganda and Rwanda had to offer.”
Adrian Piotto, Managing Director for G Adventures Australia and New Zealand has confirmed UMI will be coming back, even bigger and better in 2018.
“We love to reward our supporting agents, and it’s inspiring to hear their feedback and insights. That’s why we plan on continuing these kind of incentives, so watch this space!”
