MARASA AFRICA HOLDS 2013 RATES FOR CHOBE SAFARI LODGE
(Posted 04th January 2014)
Marasa Africa, owners and operators of 4 safari lodges in Uganda and 3 safari properties in Kenya, has taken the opportunity, when wishing their clientele a Happy New Year, to also announce that their rack rates for the Chobe Safari Lodge will remain for 2014 as they were set in 2013, after the Ugandan government yielded to pressure and rescinded a decision to levy an 18 percent VAT on tourist lodges and hotels in upcountry locations.
Marasa also pledged to continue their generous discounting policy for local tourists, which includes visitors from the other 4 East African Community member states, in their effort to promote domestic tourism.
The lodge, in a related development, also broke news that an 80 kilogram Nile Perch was caught recently by one of their guests’ who was out fishing on the River Nile. After weighing and tagging the giant was the fish then released back into the river to live another day. Chobe Safari Lodge has for long maintained a reputation as one of Uganda’s finest fishing locations along the River Nile, which rushes towards the Murchisons Falls and forms a never ending sound background as well as provides spectacular sights for visitors as seen in the picture above.
