Twenzori Mountains, Uganda
Kyambura Gorge Lodge lies at the foot of the Rwenzori Mountains, on the edge of the stunning Kyambura Gorge and Queen Elizabeth National Park in Uganda, home of the mountain gorilla. A former coffee processing facility, this luxury safari lodge has been transformed into luxury boutique camp, its eclectic style combining rustic charm with contemporary chic design. The lodge is an hour’s flight from the international airport in Entebbe.
This charming eco-lodge will appeal to adventurous travellers seeking a unique and unforgettable jungle safari experience in a spectacular setting. Families are welcome but there are no specific facilities for children. Please be aware that children under 15 are not allowed to track gorillas.
Kyambura Gorge Lodge provides eight spacious, grass-thatched bandas spread out across the estate for maximum privacy. Each banda features simple but stylish décor, a handcrafted bush bed, a spacious bathroom, and a balcony offering impressive views across the plains.
Enjoy mouthwatering international and African delights prepared using fresh, organic and homegrown produce, and served in the dining room or out on the deck overlooking the gorge.
Spend the day tracking endangered chimpanzees in Kyambura gorge; experience the thrill of a game drive in Queen Elizabeth National Park and see buffalo, elephant, lion and leopard; or take a boat cruise along the famous Kazinga Channel for the chance to spot crocodile and hippo. You can also go hiking or bird watching. The lodge offers a variety of unique tours including the Community Coffee Tour, the Beehive Tour and a visit to Omuma Shaka Playground.
After a tiring day, cool off in the inviting salt-water swimming pool, laze in a hammock as you enjoy the views, or ease weary legs with a massage in the privacy of your room.
