Mount Gahinga Lodge
Mount Gahinga Lodge is one of Uganda’s best kept secret romantic hideaways, set in the Ugandan foothills of the Virunga volcanoes. What could be more romantic than the early morning mist rising from the peak of the volcano?
Optional activities at Mount Gahinga Lodge include volcano hiking, village walks, Batwa cultural experience and trekking the golden monkeys.
At the end of the day, return to the Lodge and warm yourself by the fireside in the dining area. For a more intimate experience, you can enjoy dinner next to the fireside in your banda. (Just please request this at the time of booking).
Included in this special Valentine’s offer is a complimentary bottle of wine and freshly picked local flowers. Would the two of you like to dine on your own? Just ask the staff to organise a private dinner for you. (Please request this at the time of booking).
Terms and conditions: this rate is for full board accommodation for East African residents. Activities and alcoholic drinks are charged extra. This offer is conditional on two people sharing a room for two nights or more.
Please contact the Volcanoes Safaris' sales team to make your Valentine's weekend reservation.
Tracking chimpanzees in their natural habitat, as they swing from the branches in the canopy high above the forest floor is nothing short of exhilarating. The chimps effortlessly cross and scamper through the trees above the gorge, and visitors on the other hand must cross the river using natural bridges in order to keep up with the chimps. So although the walk usually lasts only 2–3 hours, descending the steep gorge and crossing the log bridges over the river requires some agility and fitness.
Chimpanzee tracking is also available in nearby Kalinzu, a forest reserve 30 minutes drive from Kyambura Gorge Lodge where there is a community of about 40 habituated chimpanzees.
