What makes Kyambura special?
If you're tracking chimpanzees, or looking to take a boat safari across the Kazinga Channel, then you'll want to stay at Kyambura Gorge Lodge. The ridge leads round to Kyambura Gorge, a natural rent in the otherwise flat plains, cut by water and thickly forested.
The elegant Kyambura Gorge Lodge is the closest property to the gorge and so is perfectly located to provide a luxurious base for chimp trekking, plus game drives and boat safaris in the heart of the park.
Stunning views of the savannah plains and the gorge, great food and drink selection, and exceptional service. Kyambura Gorge Lodge is consolidating itself as one of the best lodging options in Uganda.
Rooms & Amenities
Accommodation here takes the form of 8 bandas, 4 standard and 4 deluxe. The rooms are very spacious and include queen size beds, en-suite bathroom with private indoor and outdoor walk-in showers, a private veranda and a personal butler. Every banda has great views over both the park and the gorge.
The main reception area doubles as a lounge and dining hall and leads out on to a swimming pool that overlooks the plains. There is also a small spa facility and a complimentary massage included with every room.
Activities at Kyambura Lodge
The main activity by Kyambura Lodge is chimpanzee tracking in the gorge that runs through Queens. All visits to Queens will include a game drive on the Kasenyi plains and boat safari along the Kazinga Channel.
If you're heading further south after your visit to Queens, you can stop off at the Isasha sector to see the famous tree-climbing lions.
Please note that we do not handle lodge only requests. If you are planning a wider adventure in Uganda and want expert support, we are here to help and would love to hear from you.
