UGANDA (eTN) – The current exhibition ongoing at the UMA Lugogo Showground, focusing entirely on weddings and what is needed to make them a success, and affordable by the way, has been used by Geo Lodges Uganda to promote their lodges, the Rain Forest Lodge in Mabira, the Nile Safari Lodge just outside Murchisons Falls National Park right at the banks of the River Nile, and the Jacana Safari Lodge at Lake Nyamusingire, Queen Elizabeth National Park as honeymoon destinations.
Emily Wissanji of Geo Lodges passed on details on the promotion, aimed at keeping young Ugandan couples “at home,” while showing them the natural wonders of Uganda’s national parks – besides pampering them with extra goodies and attention during those first few crucial days after entering married life.
Rose petals leading to the double bed, sparkling wine for the couple, tropical fruit baskets, chocolates to sweeten the couple’s palate and mood, breakfast in bed – if so ordered, and romantic settings for lunches and dinners away from the curious eyes of other guests are just a few of the package contents, and, of course, at the end of the honeymoon, a late checkout to make the most of the day of departure back into “normality” before leaving the lodge.
The trips are organized by Geo Safaris, a sister company to Geo Lodges to ensure a quality operation from the time of leaving Kampala until the return of the couple, delivered at their place of residence, of course.
The exhibition was organized by the New Vision, Uganda’s leading newspaper and media group, and several thousand visitors were recorded already as the “show” enters its last day today.
In a related development, Geo Lodges has also announced a very special event for Queen Elizabeth National Park where they will hold workshops dedicated to safari and general photography between October 7-9 this year with participants staying at the Jacana Safari Lodge, conducted by Christopher Kidd.
