Located quite near Queen Elizabeth National Park, this hotel was a true oasis. As mentioned by other reviewers, the main road outside of the hotel is unbelievably potholed from the many large trucks, including UN refugee supply trucks that often traverse the road. The Kyambura Game Lodge is located at the end of a small level dirt road. We received...

I have always loved this place! The rooms overlook the National Park just below you! I would have rated it Excellent if it was not for the 5am 'wailer' from the nearby community calling for Muslim prayers! The food was over the top, the lodging on cloud 9! Maybe because I had travelled with my wife. The chef was on...

The rooms are very comfortable, well furnished, offer a nice view. The restaurant looks very nice, offers nice view deck and good litght at the evening. Unfortunately the choice of meal is very poor... If you choose the option "bed&breakfast" you have to pay 250 $ per night for 2 people and you will get only very poor breakfast. U...

We very much enjoyed our stay at Kyambura Game Lodge. The views, including from our balcony, were just beautiful. We love staying in cabins with tented walls and modern bathrooms (the best of both worlds). The service was earnest. We found that service people throughout Uganda (and Rwanda) try very hard to please and those at Kyambura were no exception....

Apologies for a long review but if you are thinking of booking this place you should be aware of some crucial aspects: Situated on the escarpment above the Savannah just south of Queen Elizabeth National Park this lodge has 8 pretty cabins built from traditional materials and utilising hand crafted natural products. The cabins offer views west across the Savannah...

This place was empty when we arrived, no guests - no staff. After calling for help, a guy showed up and presented the place. Place is new, Architecture is tasteful. View to of the valley is nice. However, place is poorly maintained, the first room we saw was not prepared, the second room one was dirty, even bird droppings. Clearly,...

Stunning location on the edge of the Rift Valley, very kind and attentive serving staff, nice pool. So far for the good news. Our room (nr. 8) was terrible : not clean, all textiles stained, literally full of insects. The manager blamed it “to nature”, did not propose to change rooms nor to fumigate the room. WIFI didn’t function, electricity...

Superb views, and offering a variety of animals roaming around the area. Very acceptable food, BUT, ask for the wine-list or you may find yourself paying £40 for an unspecified bottle ! All in all, a decent location.

Visited in May. At least at that time they took only cash or wire transfer. I paid by wire transfer. After I was in-country they notified me that they hadn't received my payment. I was unable to communicate enough from Uganda with my bank to obtain the proof of payment so we had to pay cash on arrival. That was...
