Kyambura Gorge Lodge

Colourful, bright and contemporary, this great little lodge feels like a Mediterranean garden home, livened up with coloured glass and even more colourful fabrics. The airy and light rooms, make clever use of light bamboo and simple furnishings to combine comfort and style.

Huge, open living spaces in the main area, incorporate weathered pieces collected from around the site of the lodge in its former life as a working coffee plantation. A delicious, lazy lunch can be taken in the shade of the pergola outside, before lounging in the huge cushions and hanging chairs, looking out across the commanding views of the Rwenzoris and the gorge after which the lodge is named. At night, the candles add atmosphere and whilst the food is always good, the goat curry is out of this world.

Lion Tracking

As well as chimp trekking, boat trips and game drives, it is now also possible to track lions in Queen Elizabeth National Park – this is easily arranged through Kyamburu Gorge Lodge. These excursions are led by Dr Seifat or one of the other researchers based in the park.

Spend several hours tracking the park’s tree-climbing lions, using locator devices to find them. Gain a hands-on understanding of lion research as well as having a fantastic opportunity to encounter the park’s largest predators.
