Kyambura Gorge Lodge Highlights
Queen Elizabeth National Park is Uganda’s premier safari region and is famously the location of tree-climbing lions and chimpanzees which live in the forest of Kyambura Gorge. The luxurious lodge of the same name hosts guests in superior comfort and style, while celebrating its unique Ugandan flair. The lodge was originally a local coffee shop and retains all the charm of this regional specialty. The views from the lodge include the classic Queen Elizabeth savannah, the distant mountains, and the dense gorge. Decor is eclectic, food is traditional and tasty, and warm staff deliver an excellent service.
- There are eight bandas (two twins, six doubles) which are each built with brick and local timber and enjoy a view of the savannah or the gorge.
- There is a swimming pool, WiFi, and a massage area to provide relaxation and refreshment to safari goers during leisure time at the lodge.
- Kyambura is a Conde Naste award-winning lodge with a contemporary, luxurious style and intimacy in one of Uganda’s most sought after areas.
- Guests at Kyambura will be well looked after by personal butlers, and excellently fed by the team in the kitchen, making their stay exceptionally memorable.
Kyambura Gorge Lodge Game Viewing and Activities
Queen Elizabeth National Park is located in southwestern Uganda, centred on the Kazinga Channel and linked to Kibale Forest to the north of it. There are about 650 bird species in the park which is a record high for any African park, and naturally attracts visitors from all over the world. Bird watching aside, Kyambura offers game drives in the national park, which includes a chance of the famous tree-climbing lions of Ishasha, and boat cruises down the Kazinga Channel. Boat cruises are an opportunity to see elephants and other wildlife drinking and bathing in the water, while enjoying refreshments on board. Chimpanzee tracking is perhaps the greatest attraction at Kyambura Gorge, as this is one of only two places in Uganda where this activity is offered. A local coffee plantation is run by members of the community, and is open to guests at Kyambura Lodge, who would like to tour the farm.
