Volcanoes Safaris open Kyambura Gorge Lodge in UgandaBy Volcanoes Safaris
Volcanoes is delighted to announce that the newest addition to the Volcanoes Collection, Kyambura Gorge Lodge is open.
Situated in western Uganda, on the edge of the Kyambura Gorge and Queen Elizabeth National Park, one of Africa’s finest national parks, the lodge has stunning views over the Gorge and the lush savannah of the park, with the peaks of the Rwenzori Mountains in the distance.
Praveen Moman the co-founder of Volcanoes Safaris said at the opening, “The Volcanoes Kyambura Gorge Lodge is a celebration of contemporary Africa. It provides guests with excellent hospitality in a unique setting. It connects them to the conservation of wildlife and chimpanzees and to the communities nearby. This allows guests to experience an integrated view of the challenges of ecotourism in Africa today.”
Kyambura Gorge Lodge is already considered to be one of the pre-eminent lodges in Queen Elizabeth National Park, and is one of the most luxurious and innovative lodges in the region.
“The opening of the Lodge symbolizes the long journey Volcanoes has embarked on in this area, not only in building a fantastic contemporary eco-lodge, but through the creation of a series of major long-term practical ecotourism initiatives on the ground, linking the lodge with conservation and the communities,” says Moman.
From the Lodge guests can go chimp tracking in the Kyambura Gorge or Kalinzu forest. Guests can also take a game drive on the plains of Queen Elizabeth to spot lions, elephant, antelope, buffalo and some of the 600 birds species that live in this national park such as the spoonbill stork, or take a boat out onto the Kazinga Channel to spot the many birds and animals which come to cool off at the waters’ edge. Guests can also take a guided walk around the Lodge grounds to tour the community coffee processing plant and other projects supported by Volcanoes, or through the wetland to spot bird species.
Kyambura Gorge Lodge is 45 mins from Kampala by private plane or 6 hours drive.
