Kyambura Gorge Lodge

See our selecton of sample itineraries which feature Kyambura Gorge Lodge

Kyambura Gorge Lodge boasts one of the finest views in all of Africa, situated as it is overlooking the 300ft deep Kyambura Gorge and the beautiful savannah and craters of Queen Elizabeth National Park, with the Rwenzori Mountains as a brooding backdrop.

There are eight stilted and thatch-roofed bandas in what was once a coffee plant, each with elegant minimalist interiors, different colour schemes and and en suite bathrooms.

The original coffee storage and processing building has been cleverly restored and now houses a lounge, dining room and terrace offering spectacular views.

The main activity from the lodge is trekking through the vines and giant fig trees of Kyambura Gorge or nearby Kalinzu Forest in search of a troop of habituated chimpanzees but more conventional (and less tiring) 4x4 game drives are also available to spot the lions, antelope, buffalo and elephants that call Queen Elizabeth National Park home.

The nearby Kazinga Channel is also ripe for exploration by boat, offering a chance to see many bird species (600 at last count) and animals that live in the water's edge habitat.

This lodge is undergoing extensive upgrades and renovation throughout 2018, including full refurbishment of all guest bandas, redesigned swimming pool and spa, and improved design and interiors of all communal guest areas.

Why We Love It

With fingers firmly crossed, you will see chimpanzees during a stay at Kyambura Gorge Lodge, but if not, you're guaranteed to at least hear their calls echoing up from the gorge below.
