The prize is four days at the newly opened Kyambura Gorge in Uganda, an idyllic lodge development that marries traditional African design with western sensibilities on the site of an old coffee processing plant, situated at the edge of the breathtaking Queen Elizabeth National Park complete with stunning salt water pool. The lucky winners will be met at the airport by one of Volcanoes’ knowledgeable and warm guides who will accompany the couple throughout the stay.
Day one includes a relaxing drive to the lodge, a trip to the royal drum makers and dinner overlooking the amazing Rwenzori Mountains. Days two and three will see the couple take in the extraordinary savannahs as they track lion, hippo, leopard, chimpanzee, elephant, buffalo and over 600 species of wild birds – the scenery is breathtaking and the wildlife truly enchanting. Day four allows for more cultural visits and shopping at traditional roadside markets.

This special contest is an example of some of the extraordinary honeymoon packages on offer from Volcanoes Safaris, a company with an outstanding reputation for delivering tailor made, luxury safari trips to ecologically unique areas of central Africa.
Pioneers in eco-tourism, Volcanoes Safaris understand the needs and culture of local communities and work with them to provide sustainable tourism and an ethical income to a truly beautiful area of rural Africa – something highlighted by the numerous funded community initiatives they invest in.
The company has also set up the Volcanoes Safaris Partnership Trust, which links neighbouring communities to conservation and eco-tourism in keeping with Volcanoes’ distinctive vision for great ape eco-tourism.
