Mango Opinion

Kyambura Safari Lodge if has a fun and funky design style. It is the nicest lodge in this part of Uganda and offers guests access to Kazinga Channel for birding, Kyambura Gorge for chimpanzee trekking, and Queen Elizabeth National Park for safari drives.

Kyambura Lodge has been converted from an old coffee store to create a breathtakingly beautiful space. The lodge is located on the edge of Queen Elizabeth National Park with sweeping views of the rolling savanna, the distant mountains of the moon, and the sunken Kyambura Gorge.

The stylish bandas also have a contemporary theme with the accent on local artifacts re-imagined in a new context. Each banda offers a unique view either across the savanna or the gorge. The swimming pool has been redesigned and upgraded a new spa has been launched. The main lodge building was originally a coffee plantation. The original structure has been sensitively restored to create a stunning living space, balancing the history of the building with the location and creating a series of distinct luxurious contemporary spaces for guests.

The lodge is the ideal location for tracking the lost chimps in the sunken forest of Kyambura Gorge nearby and seeing the amazing game in one of Africa’s most beautiful and varied parks, centered around the waterway of the Kazinga Channel where animals come to bathe. The park has six hundred amazing bird species, the highest in an African park.
