About Kyambura Gorge Lodge
This eclectic contemporary safari lodge in Uganda has been converted from an old coffee processing plant and is an ideal location for Uganda safari activities including chimpanzee trekking, wetland tours, lion safaris, and much more. Kyambura Gorge Lodge boasts incredible views overlooking the Queen Elizabeth National Park, with the mythical Mountains of the Moon in the far distance.
The lodge has been built using environmentally-friendly, local materials by the community. Accommodation is provided in seven spacious and tastefully designed self contained grass-thatched cottages, with bath tubs/showers with views to the park, hot and cold running water, equipped with 220V electricity and a private wooden balcony perched over Queen Elisabeth National Park. All cottages are surrounded by jungle and spaced out to ensure ultimate privacy.
There is a swimming pool, adjacent to the camp fire where a local traditional dance is often performed (Banyaruguru troupe). The restaurant and the lounge open towards a sundowner deck which overlooks the National Park. A perfect setting to relax in the evenings while discussing up the day's activities.
Kyambura Lodge is situated at the eastern edge of Queen Elisabeth National Park, in the western part of the great East African Rift valley, with fantastic views over the national park and the Rwenzori Mountains and at a short distance from the Kyambura Gorge.
Queen Elisabeth National Park hosts almost 100 mammal species and a remarkable 606 bird species making this superb safari territory, with elephant, a profusion of hippos, the elusive giant forest hog and handsome Uganda kob all regularly sighted. The remote Ishasha Sector is famed for its tree-climbing lions, the Kyambura Gorge harbours habituated chimps, the Maramagambo Forest is home to an alluring selection of forest monkeys and birds, and flocks of flamingo are resident on the crater lakes.
