The lodge common areas are really nice, good food in the restaurant, and you can sit out the front and have a cup of tea, or browse the free WiFi The rooms are fairly basic, but clean and with mosquito nets.

We stayed two nights at the Silverback Lodge and had a very nice stay. The Silverback Lodge is very well located for the Gorilla Trekking starting point. The view is stunning, the staff is very accomodating and the orphan children is there in the evening to entertain you, which was such a heart warming experience.

My third visit to the lodge with a friend for gorilla tracking and what can I say, excellent location overlooking the mountains, tasty food, wifi in the reception, hot showers, and a cozy stay. I just feel like coming back again and again. The orphan children from the local community entertain with their skills in the evening and its heart... More

We stayed at Silverback as part of a tour to visit the gorillas, choosing the "mid-price" option. We thought the lodge was very nice. The room was a bit dated for sure, but had a lovely verandah looking directly over the valley to the impenetrable forest itself. The large lobby area verandah was also a lovely place to sit with...

The staff made us feel really welcome and the food was certainly the best we had during our trip around Uganda. We felt that there was a genuine care about their work. Of course, we were all there to trek up into the forest to see the gorillas, and we were able to relax after those amazing experiences, looking back... More

This was probably one of the worst lodges we stayed in for quality of deco and room. It was dated and shabby although clean. The location is stunning with views over the Bwindi National Park. The seating outside reception was comfortable but the rest of the lodge is very tired. The dining area was cramped but fortunately the lodge was... More

Friendly and helpfull staff. Service level is high. Food is excellent. We arrived unfortunately around midnight, but it was no problem to serve us a warm meal. Next morning transport after a healthy breakfast we were brought to the park gate. As Siverback Lodge had already arranged for the needed day permits weeks before everything went without stress.

The perfect lodge, after gorilla tracking you can relax in the lovely canopied lobby and bar, overlooking the forest canopy. Great food, lovely hot showers (well deserved after trekking gorillas). But most of all amazing staff, I had difficulties with my tour guide, and the hotel staff, particularly the manager, discretely and professional helped me in what was a difficult... More
