What an amazing place. The views are spectacular - no room is without a breathtaking view of the Queen Elizabeth National Park. The resort is quiet, beautiful and so comfortable. The staff are just amazing. So professional and yet so kind and wonderful. Albert, the manager, is a model of efficiency. Don't let his quiet, calm manner fool you -... More

The best managed lodge we had the pleasure to stay at in Uganda. The service was incredible, the food excellent and no detail missed. The only downside is the position relatively near a village which can result in loud music being played and Islamic call to prayer early mornings. But the views over the park from our deck, the luxurious... More

This is a beautiful property bordering the park and only a few minutes to the Gorge for Chimp trekking. Unfortunately we were in cabins 1 and 2 and they are the closest to the new lodge going up next door, so we had some construction noise in the day time and a loud blasting tv at night! Also the local... More

Lovely place with the beautiful view of Queen Elizabeth National Park.It is located near the Muslim community so things like adhan from the mosque five times a day is expected.Slept in a twin room with ma friend and I wasn't happy either about the small bed. Apart from that,everything was perfecto.

Our safari group of 14 was booked into Kyambura Game Lodge, two to a room. In at least two rooms, this meant a regular sized bed and a child-sized bed. Okay, comfort isn't everything, but with so many bugs in the room (because the screens have tears in them) it is disquieting to have your head and feet pressed against... More

When you are settled down in your room at Kyambura Game Lodge, you notice the amazing view you have from your balcony! You can sit and watch elephants passing down while eating, or a herd of buffaloes. At night the oppressive mountains of the Kongo border are lightened with thunders, which assures you're in Africa.. The food is basic and... More

We stayed three nights at this quaint specialty lodge outside of Queen Elizabeth. The service was wonderful! From the moment we arrived, we felt like treasured guests and family. Abraham and Ben made sure that every meal was served hot and on time to fit our safari schedule. They even were up before sunrise with hot coffee and packed breakfasts... More

We stayed for two nights for our very belated honeymoon. It was the perfect place, the staff was good, the lodge nicely designed and the rooms fantastic to be in and look at and out. The covers of the sofa should be washed though a bit more often I assume. Food was good, view amazing, always electricity including plugs in... More

We have safaried all over Tanzania, Kenya, Rwanda and Uganda and this one was one of the best stops we had. Very close access to the animal park, wonderful pool, excellent food and the tent style lodges are just fantastic. We loved the bathrooms with there oversized walk in stone shower.

This was one of the highlights of my Uganda experience; never did I expect such luxury! This lodge was beautifully and thoughtfully decorated, the views from the room were stunning, looking across miles of savannah plains. Albert greeted us enthusiastically and all of the staff were warm, friendly and went out of their way to ensure our comfort and provide... More
