Arjun Ohri and Ami Dalal were on their Italian honeymoon in Tuscany when they found out that when they got home there would be another fabulous holiday waiting for them.
The couple are the lucky winners of a luxury safari holiday courtesy of Volcanoes Safaris and were randomly picked out from hundreds of other couples who entered the competition. They will be spending four fantastic days exploring the savannahs, taking in the local African culture and enjoying accommodation at Kyambura Gorge Lodge in Uganda, a lodge situated on the site of an old coffee pressing plant next to a threatened community of chimpanzees at Queen Elizabeth National Park.
Their prize includes an outstanding safari where they can expect to see lions, elephants, hippos, buffalo, leopards, chimpanzees and exotic wild birds amongst the incomparable African scenery. As well as the amazing wildlife, they also can look forward to exciting shopping opportunities at traditional markets, a trip to the royal drum makers and a delicious dinner overlooking the breath taking Rwenzori Mountains.
Ami Ohri and Arjun Dalal said they had always wanted to go on an African safari and with their upcoming wedding they were also looking to book a honeymoon.
"We were looking for a destination for a honeymoon and so we entered the honeymoon contest. However, we found out we had won the contest while in the Tuscan countryside- on our oneymoon! We cannot wait to go on our second honeymoon with Volcanoes Safaris."
The happy couple’s summer wedding took place in June at Newport Beach in California and the newly married pair also recently moved into a new home, so this unexpected second honeymoon comes as an extraordinary bit of good luck as they begin their life together.
Volcanoes Safaris, the providers of this great prize, were set up in1997 and specialise in mountain gorilla and chimpanzee safaris in Uganda and Rwanda. They are award winners in the field of ecotourism and pride themselves in respecting the local culture of the communities. In 2005, Volcanoes Safaris became the only safari company to become a signatory to the UN Kinshasa Declaration on Safeguarding the Great Apes.
