Kyambura wildlife Reserve borders to the west of Kyambura Gorge which is part of the Queen Elizabeth National Park (QENP) in Uganda. It is home to a variety of wildlife, including the only primates in the Queen Elizabeth National Park. The area is an important water source for many animals and is surrounded by savanna, but is generally noted for its high concentration of primate life located in the gorge.
Kyambura Game Reserve was formed to serve as a buffer zone to the Queen Elizabeth National Park. Kyambura is the only place in QENP where habituated chimpanzees and other types of primates including red-tailed monkey, black-and-white colobus, baboons and vervet monkeys are seen. The park is also known for its variety of avian species including various falcons, the blue-headed bee-eater and the African fin foot. Tracking the chimps in the Gorge is more physically challenging and therefore is suitable only for reasonably fit people. But it is a real rewarding rain forest experience, and the place is just fantastic.
Kyambura is located on north-eastern side of QENP, approximately 30 km from QENP Headquarters. Kyambura Gorge spans a distance of 11 km and links to the Kazinga Channel, which forms the northern boundary of the reserve. Village and plantations lie to the south.
