Kyambura river gorge is situated on North-Eastern side of the Park (QENP) - 35 kms from Mweya the park headquarters. The Gorge spans a distance of 16 kms or 10 miles long and 100m deep, while the widest point is over 500 metres. The Gorge emerges between savannah grasslands. It forms an outstanding topographic feature in dramatic contrast to surrounding savannah landscape. The Gorge has a riverine virgin forest that transits to papyrus swamps towards the Kazinga channel.
It is the only place in the Park where you can view the chimpanzees at close range - "Habituated" with other types of primates including black-and-white colobos monkey, red-tailed monkey, baboons and vervet monkeys and giant forest hogs. The Gorge is also a habitat for concentration of birds - Peregrine Falcon, Falcon peregrinus, black be eater- Merops Mulleri and African Finfoot etc. The Gorge is an important water source for savannah animals. And it is for this reason that the nature walk is conducted by an armed ranger.
