My fiance and I stayed here 1 night after hiking from the other side of Bwindi. We prefer to stay in the more remote places, but it's nice to stay at a lodge every so often to recharge the batteries a bit. This is a very nice lodge. The setting is great, the rooms are comfortable, the hot shower was... More

Here you are in the rainforest with mountains all around. Lovely cottage rooms and comfortable lounge and dining area. Beautiful rustic wooden décor and furniture. And you get to see the most endearing and awe inspiring primates! Really good food and friendly staff.

Fancy a great view of Bwindi this is the place to be. Great spot to launch gorilla tracking adventures . prices are quite steep and there was no food on the evening I was there. Transportation has to be pre arranged due to location but not a hustle if you have private means. Great crowd on the day minding there... More

We stayed here for 1 night before our trekking day. Staff were incredibly considerate and helpful, including helping us arrange our future travel accommodation. The views are incredible, don't miss sunset! We were here as part of an organised tour and our meals were included: the chef was v good and portions generous.

I recently returned from my first trip to Uganda and as part of a gorilla trekking tour, I had the good fortune to stay at the Silverback Lodge. The staff were all so friendly and helpful. I must give an especially big thank you to Godfrey, the lodge manager, for taking such good care of me! Godfrey even accompanied me... More

Goal was Gorilla trek. This was a beautiful place to stage out of. Very nice staff, good food, very small and cozy. Good hot water was so welcome. Small rooms but more than enough since a hot shower and bed after 7 hours of trekking was all we wanted. The lodge looks over the mountainside, beautiful morning and night.

Rooms not very big, some difficulty to walk around the bed, and to find place for baggages, but clean and quite functional. good double bathroom, (toilet and shower separated) good... More

Stayed here 2 nights. Out of the way and remote, but they have good food and the staff are very friendly. Takes about 3 hours to get to on a very dusty road. Views of the Bwindi park/forest are spectacular.

The lodgings were wonderful. Take the Buhoma community walk while there and support the women's collective. The food was great and staff friendly and helpful. Wifi somewhat unpredictable. Best showers in Uganda :-). The perfect place from which to track gorillas.
