Kyambura Gorge Lodge
Kyambura Gorge Lodge is a very sumptuous base camp from which to explore all areas of Queen Elizabeth National Park.
This eclectic contemporary safari lodge has been converted from an old coffee store to create a breathtakingly beautiful space. Kyambura Gorge Lodge is located on the edge of Queen Elizabeth National Park with sweeping views of the rolling savanna, the distant mountains of the moon, and the sunken Kyambura Gorge.
The main lodge building was originally a coffee store and processing plant, surrounded by coffee plantations. The original structure has been sensitively restored to create a stunning living space, balancing the history of the building with the location and creating a series of distinct luxurious contemporary spaces for guests.
Eight beautiful, spacious bandas have been carefully nestled into the hillside, each with their own luxury bathroom. Each stylish room has a different aspect of the panoramic views across the gorge, savannah and mythical Rwenzoris. Each banda is uniquely appointed, adopting a different colour theme.
From the Lodge you can go chimp tracking in the Kyambura Gorge or Kalinzu forest. Chimps are very mobile, tracking them as they crash through the canopy screaming and whooping can take stamina. You can also take a game drive on the plains of Queen Elizabeth to spot lions, elephant, antelope, buffalo and some of the 600 birds species that live in this national park such as the spoonbill stork, or take a boat out onto the Kazinga Channel to spot the many birds and animals which come to cool off at the waters’ edge. Venture out on a guided walk around the Lodge grounds to tour the community coffee processing plant and other projects supported by Volcanoes, or through the wetland to spot bird species.
Alternatively simply relax in the beautiful atmosphere of this unique lodge and watch game on the savannah plains below, listening to the sounds of the chimps and birds in the gorge.
