This eclectic contemporary lodge has been converted from an old coffee processing plant and has incredible views overlooking the Queen Elizabeth National Park, the mythical Mountains of the Moon in the far distance.
The innovative and contemporary Kyambura Gorge Lodgeis located on the border of the expansive Queen Elizabeth National Park, the second largest National Park in Uganda. The main lodge building has been sensitively restored from a previous life as a coffee processing station and now offers a truly unique experience, where every detail has been handpicked by our team of designers.
The views over the savannah are breathtaking and wild animals, particularly elephant, can often be seen wandering across the rolling landscape. Each of the eight bandas has been built with space in mind and they all feature a private balcony overlooking the park: perfect for a morning breakfast outdoors! The luxury bathrooms offer spacious showers and running water powered by solar electricity in keeping with Volcanoes eco-luxury principles.
Each banda has an individual character and colour scheme but none are as individual as the honeymoon banda. Here, honeymooners and newlyweds can enjoy the privacy of each other’s company between meals and activities in the park with many added features including an outdoor shower.
The lodge is named for the Kyambura Gorge, which it borders. In this remarkable ecosystem there is a huge diversity of animals species including an isolated family of chimpanzees.
Activities from the lodge are plentiful. The chimpanzees can be tracked twice a day from the nearby UWA Fig Tree Camp, requiring you to descend into the other-worldlyKyambura Gorge. The park itself also offers the opportunity for game drives with the chance to spot lion, elephant, buffalo, Uganda kob, waterbuck, warthog, hyena and even an elusive leopard among other animals and over 600 different species of bird!
Boat cruises along the Kazinga Channel, connecting Lake Edward and Lake George, offer sightings such as the above as well as hippo, Nile crocodile, African Fish Eagle and more.
