The Gorilla Highlands team has been organising Candlelight Midnight for over a decade. It has always been about friendship and togetherness in dugout canoes and motorboats, right at the moment the new year begins. These gatherings always include our partners local Bakiga, Batwa “Pygmies” and guests from around the world.
Depending on how far from the location of the event (the red dot on the map) you reside and the means you use, you will begin your journey any time between 11pm and 11:30pm. We will be expecting you with floating candles, sparklers, traditional music, champagne (non-alcoholic versions available too) and snacks. All we request from you is that your phones stay off until 0:00.
Some minutes after midnight you will be free to turn your gadgets on again, and depart the lake meeting place at your convenience. (Help collecting floating candles so that they don’t spoil our lake is welcome.)
