Kyambura Gorge Lodge
This eclectic contemporary safari lodge in Uganda has been converted from an old coffee processing plant and is an ideal location for Uganda safari activities including chimpanzee trekking, wetland tours, lion safaris, the African primate safari, and much more. Kyambura Gorge Lodge boasts incredible views overlooking the Queen Elizabeth National Park, with the mythical Mountains of the Moon in the far distance.
The main lodge building was originally a coffee store and processing plant, surrounded by coffee plantations. The original structure has been sensitively restored to create a stunning and contemporary living space, balancing the history of the building with a series of distinct luxurious spaces for guests to relax.
The beautiful bandas have each been nestled into the hillside with their eco-luxury comforts including en-suite bathrooms and an individual view of the park.
