Kyambura Gorge Lodge, Queen Elizabeth National Park
With the stunning landscape, swarmed with rich biodiversity is the Kyambura Gorge Lodge. It is nestled in Kyambura Gorge, also called the Valley of Apes situated in the far eastern corner of Queen Elizabeth National Park.
Kyambura Gorge was incorporated into Queen Elizabeth National Park. The Gorge was formed by a river that flows off the Kichwamba escarpment and into the Kazinga Channel at Katunguru. The gorge is 10Km long and supports dense forest, which is home to many different forestliving species, including Chimpanzees. Kyambura is the only area within Queen Elizabeth, where one can see the habituated Chimpanzees on any of the trekking tours.
Kyambura Gorge Lodge is about 430 Km from Uganda’s capital Kampala via Mbarara. Charter flights are available from Entebbe to the Airstrip in Southwestern Uganda at Mweya which is less than 60 minutes.
