A five-minute immersive cinematic virtual reality experience, the film brings you face-to-face with amazing mountain gorillas in their natural habitat. With your personal VR headset, you can escape reality and go on a gorilla trek with the beautiful, curious endangered mountain gorillas in Rwanda.
The film is free and can be viewed on partner platforms such as Oculus, Within, Samsung VR, Littlstar, and VeeR. A snapshot of the film can also be viewed without a VR headset at TheEllenFund.org/getvr.
“The global tourism industry has been greatly affected by the COVID-19 crisis and we are sad we can’t welcome visitors to see and experience our beautiful country right now. However, it’s in everyone’s best interest to stay safe at home while we work with our partners to create and share immersive content like this Gorillas VR film. As the world celebrates Earth Day for the 50th time, we hope people enjoy this virtual experience of trekking through the jungle and interact with the gentle giants of Volcanoes National Park from the comfort of their homes.” says Belise Kariza, the RDB Chief Tourism Officer.
