A former coffee plantation and estate at the foot of the Rwenzori Mountains, Kyambura Lodge has sensitively restored and eclectically decorated the old coffee-processing and drying shed to create a luxurious, eco-sensitive lodge on the edge of Kyambura Gorge and the Queen Elizabeth National Park. Forested Kyambura Gorge is the playground for endangered chimpanzees and you can spend a day tracking them while admiring their beautiful forest surroundings and enjoying some excellent bird watching.
Queen Elizabeth National Park is Uganda’s flagship big game park and is home to wildlife such as buffalo, elephant, lion, hippo, leopard and many antelope species plus no fewer than 10 primate species.Go on guided game drives through the park or take a boat cruise along the famous Kazinga Channel where you may spot hippo, Nile crocodile and scores of bird species at the water’s edge.

The old coffee store and processing plant now houses the creatively decorated and comfortable lounge and bar area with an interesting collection of books, magazines and locally made artefacts as well as a spacious dining area.
The living areas lead onto a broad deck boasting magnificent views across the gorge to the Rwenzori Mountains in the distance.
Cool off in the large, clear salt-water swimming pool or laze in a hammock on the pool deck while you admire the endless view.
Relaxing in-room massages are also available to ease the muscles after a day of chimp tracking in the forests.
