Kyaninga Lodge

Kibale Forest National Park

Day 2: Kibale Forest National Park

Kyaninga Lodge Location Map

Nestled on the edge of an extinct volcano crater lake at the foot of the Rwenzori Mountains lies Kyaninga Lodge. You can experience the beauty and romance of this unexplored region, while staying in the height of luxury and elegance. Nine exclusive cottages made from hand carved logs, superb dining, and a wealth of adventures await.

The top attraction is a chimpanzee safari in the nearby Kibale National Park. Deep in the evergreen rainforest of Kibale, you will come face to face with man's closest living relative. The forest is frequently used by documentary film-makers, including the great Sir David Attenborough. With the highest density of chimpanzees in the world, and with 13 other rare primates, the enormous Kibale Forest is a world treasure.

When not meeting the chimps, head out to the terrace and relax on loungers around the pool while enjoying the view of Lake Kyaninga. The more adventurous can walk down to Lake Kyaninga itself. With its blue water and ‘land that time forgot’ rainforest, it offers a unique opportunity to experience a wilderness rarely encountered in real life.

Kyaninga Lodge’s beautiful gardens are the creation of London-based landscape designer Imogen Jenkins. The gardens provide a stunning setting for relaxation, reflection, and space for games. There is even a lawn tennis court for you to enjoy.

The finest 3 course cuisine awaits you in the evening. The menu is based on classical European cuisine and tweaked to make use of local ingredients, many of which are hand picked from Kyaninga Lodge’s own kitchen garden or the neighbouring markets. After dinner, head through to the lounge where you can relax by the fire with a drink from the fully stocked bar.

Set apart and raised on platforms, the 9 cottages offer you privacy and tranquillity. Each spacious cottage comes with a choice of twin or double beds made up with the softest bed linen and feather pillows. An indoor seating area leads out to a private deck where you can enjoy morning tea or coffee with views over the lake and the Rwenzori Mountains. The en-suite bathrooms boast marble countertop basins set atop crafted Elgon olive pedestals, claw footed freestanding baths, and glass-walled showers. With modern solar power, you will always have hot water and electrical charging points.

You will feel a thousand miles away from the bustle of daily life, and you are - yet with Wi-Fi in the main lodge, you can still share your adventures with friends and family back home.

Kyambura Gorge Lodge

Queen Elizabeth National Park

Days 3 - 4: Queen Elizabeth National Park

Kyambura Gorge Lodge Location Map

Kyambura Gorge Lodge is an eclectic contemporary safari lodge that 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 lodge is the ideal location for tracking the lost chimps in the nearby sunken forest of Kyambura Gorge as well as seeing the amazing game in one of Africa’s most beautiful and varied Parks, centred around the waterway of the Kazinga Channel where animals come to bathe. The Park has 600 amazing bird species.

Queen Elizabeth National Park is considered to be one of Uganda’s most varied and most beautiful protected areas. Queen, as she is affectionately known, is home to two of Africa’s big cats, the majestic lion and the elusive leopard. Kyambura Gorge Lodge guests can explore the plains of Queen Elizabeth Park in Uganda on a variety of game drives, usually at dawn and dusk. It is when daylight hours are coolest that wildlife is most active.

Tracking chimpanzees in their natural habitat, as they swing from the branches in the canopy high above the forest floor is nothing short of exhilarating. The chimps effortlessly cross and scamper through the trees above the gorge, and visitors on the other hand must cross the river using natural bridges in order to keep up with the chimps. So although the walk usually lasts only 2-3 hours, descending the steep gorge and crossing the log bridges over the river requires some agility and fitness. Chimpanzee tracking is also available in nearby Kalinzu, a forest reserve 30 minutes drive from Kyambura Gorge Lodge where there is a community of about 40 habituated chimpanzees.

The Kazinga Channel is a 32 km long channel, rich in wildlife, that links Lakes Edward and George. Boat trips down the channel depart from Mweya Safari Lodge (about an hour’s drive through the Park from Kyambura Gorge Lodge) and last 3-4 hours. The boat cruise provides a wonderful opportunity to photograph the many animals that come to cool off at the waters’ edge, including lion, buffalo, hippo, elephant, and leopard.

The 8 stylish bandas also have a contemporary theme with the accent on local artefacts re-imagined in a new context. Each banda offers a unique view either across the savanna or the gorge from its private balcony.

The main guest areas include an inviting salt water swimming pool, and a peaceful massage room.
