There is a gathering area that was perfect for 15-20 to gather and share gorilla or other stories. Rooms were ok - quite a bit of...

Great meals, great service and great location. We were just a five minute drive from the park entrance. The food was good. There is a small menu, but we enjoyed what we had. They have a turn down service which ensures that the mosquito nets are properly set up. The electricity and wifi are sporadic, but the views make up...

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.
