Located in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest's Buhoma sector, Silverback Lodge affords excellent views of the park and sweeping valley and is only a 5 minute walk away from the park. Bwindi is a bird watchers paradise, with around 350 different species populating the forest and the chance to encounter over 100 different species of mammal.
There are a total of 12 rooms, all of which possess excellent vistas. Guests can expect 7 twin rooms, 4 double rooms and 1 single room.
