Our route to the Northern part of QENP took us to Kyambura Game Lodge. The view towards Mount Rwenzori was spectacular, even though it teased us throughout our stay. Even just sat on the various areas of the main bomb and our room veranda we must have seen 20 plus species of birds. Waterbuck, kob and elephants roam the ground directly below the lodge and you get especially good sightings on the road to the pay itself.
The room was good, hot showers (not essential, but enjoyable nonetheless), and mousebirds aplenty!
Food was again of a good standard, I like the concept of ordering a meal in advanced as it means you are not waiting long periods for it to arrive. Important when you have an early start.
Had a good walk up to the crater lakes and back through the village. Well worth the steep climb!
The park had lots of kob, and gave an early morning glimpse of four lions before they headed to the bush for cover.
The Kazinga channel boat cruise was good, plenty of hippo and buffalo, and it is inundated with pied kingfishers. Only one elephant anyone cats, but there was plenty of evidence that they may have been down had the day been hotter.
