Volcanoes Safaris have announced a brand new lodge in Uganda, at the heart of the Kyambura Gorge and Queen Elizabeth National Park.
The lodge, which was originally a coffee store and procesing plant, offers stunning views over the Gorge and the lush savannah of the park, with the peaks of the Rwenzori Mountains in the distance.
From the new accomodation guests can experience chimp tracking in the Kyambura Gorge or Kalinzu forest or 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 there.
The original structure of the building has been sensitively restored to create a stunning living space, balancing the history of the building with the location and creating a series of distinct luxurious contemporary spaces for guests.
Four beautiful, spacious bandas have been carefully nestled into the hillside, each with their own luxury bathroom, panoramic views and a unique colour theme.
Praveen Moman, MD of Volcanoes Safaris, said: "The focus for 2012 is to give our guests the opportunity to explore an amazing combination of wildlife and primates that the areas have to offer - whether at the contemporary Kyambura Gorge where you can track chimpanzees and view over 600 species of bird; or at the newly refurbished Bwindi Lodge where there are four gorilla families that can be seen in their natural habitat”
The opening of Volcanoes Kyambura Gorge Lodge marks the fourth in the groups collection. Prices start from £1,500.
