Silverback Lodge is located in the Buhoma sector of Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park in western Uganda.
The lodge, with sweeping views of the national park, is a 124 sq mile UNESCO site home to approximately 350 mountain gorillas (half of the world's remaining population), non-habituated chimpanzees, more than 100 other species of mammals, 346 species of birds, and 163 species of trees.
The 12 rooms were built and designed using local materials, such as forest vines, sisal rope and purple slate stone. Each room has an en suite bathroom (with hot water showers) and comfortable chairs on the veranda for viewing the flora and fauna that make up the surroundings in the valley.
Activities include gorilla trekking, bird watching, day and night trips to Queen Elizabeth National Park, the Batwa trail, and mountain bike rides.
There is also a variety of 6 hiking trails.
Bird watching and sometimes primate viewing is possible right from the front door of your room.
