Situated on the edge of the Kyambura Gorge and Queen Elizabeth National Park, Kyambura Gorge Lodge has spectacular views over the Gorge and the lush savannah of the park, with the peaks of the Rwenzori Mountains in the distance.
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 central living space. Accommodation is in four, spacious thatched chalets which are set into the hillside, each with a luxury bathroom.
From the lodge guests can go chimp tracking in the Kyambura Gorge or Kalinzu forest. Chimps are very mobile; tracking them as they crash through the canopy can take stamina. Guests can also take a game drive on the plains of Queen Elizabeth to spot lion, elephant, antelope, buffalo and some of the 600 bird species that live in the area such as the spoonbill stork. Alternatively, guests can take a boat out onto the Kazinga Channel to spot the many birds and animals which come to cool off at the waters' edge.
Other activities include guided walks around the lodge grounds to tour the community coffee processing plant and other community projects, or through the wetlands to spot bird species. Alternatively guests can simply relax at the lodge and watch game on the savannah plains below, listening to the sounds of the chimps and birds in the gorge.
