Accesing Silverback Lodge

This lodge in Uganda is perched above the valley in the Buhoma Sector of the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park, a UNESCO site.

Getting to Silverback Lodge

By Air

Flights can be arranged from Entebbe Airport or Kajjansi Airstrip (about 25km from the airport) and last for about 1.5 - 2 hours.

For small groups or families of 1 - 5 persons, Kayonza airstrip, 25km to Silverback Lodge, is ideal. This would strictly be on private charter basis as scheduled lights do not use this airstrip.

Larger groups can use Kihihi or Ishaha airstrips, which are about 60km from Silverback Lodge. Transfers to and from the airstrip can be arranged by the lodge.
