Hotel Overview


Ideally located for chimpanzee tracking, on the edge of Kyambura Gorge and Queen Elizabeth National Park.

Rooms at Kyambura Gorge Safari Lodge

There are four wood and thatch chalets perched up on the hillside, with spectacular views out towards the gorge and the surrounding grassland. The feel is pretty, airy and modern, making a real break with the colonial style lodges and tented camps found elsewhere in Africa.

Food and Facilities

The main lodge was once a coffee store. Its redesign has incorporated a dining area and a verandah with beautiful views out towards Kyambura Gorge. Food is good, and there’s a swimming pool looking out over the gorge.

Activities at Kyambura Gorge Safari Lodge

This is paradise for wildlife lovers. Activities here are incredibly diverse. Guests can track chimps, go for game drives on the plains of the national park (looking out in particular for lion, ellies and hippos) and take boat trips on the Kazinga Channel.

Birdwatching is a must here too - the myriad of brightly-coloured flitting, diving, swooping creatures is mesmerising. There are also some brilliant walks through the surrounding countryside to see some of the projects that the lodge supports in the local community.
