Kyambura Gorge Safari Lodge is an eclectic, contemporary lodge as well as part of an eco-tourism project on a former coffee plantation at the edge of Kyambura Gorge and Queen Elizabeth National Park.
The lodge’s eight stylish bandas were recently updated with a contemporary theme that incorporates local artifacts and now includes four deluxe bandas. Each room is named after a local chimpanzee and comes with a luxury en suite bathroom with a flushing toilet, double vanity, and a shower with hot and cold running water. Moreover, each banda includes a private balcony with a unique view either across the savanna or the gorge.
The lodge is located on the edge of Queen Elizabeth National Park with panoramic views of the rolling savanna, the distant Rwenzori Mountains, and the sunken Kyambura Gorge. The Park spreads over an area of 1,200 square miles in the western arm of the Great East African Rift Valley. Elephant, lion, hippo, leopard, buffalo, Uganda Kob, baboon, and over 600 birds make their home in the area. Particular to the southern area of the park are tree-climbing lions often found resting in the large fig trees. However, the lodge is also located near the sunken forest of Kyambura Gorge, home to a tropical rainforest and chimpanzees some of which have been habituated. The Kazinga Channel flows through the park.
