Marcus Falconer, Go Ape marketing manager, said: “We're really pleased to get recognition from the travel industry for the work that we do and the quality of our brilliant new website. The website is proving a big hit with our tribe of gorillas and baboons and has great new features such as Flickr and Youtube feeds, video footage, a course finder and the new Banana Blog.”

The annual awards are voted for by TravelMole subscribers and judged by an independent panel of travel and tourism experts.
