Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge is located at the foot of Mt. Sabyinyo in north-western Rwanda just outside of the Parc National des Volcans where the magnificent Mountain Gorilla can be seen – perhaps one of the most dramatic, thrilling and poignant wildlife experiences possible. Set in landscaped gardens at approximately 2,150m, it offers spectacular views of the Virunga Mountains. The lodge comprises a main lodge building, including bar, dining room, library, games room, reception, shop and community awareness centre. Furthermore, there are 5 cottages, 2 suites and 1 family cottage, all offering sitting rooms, fire places, dressing rooms, large bathrooms with all modern amenities, large beds and verandahs. The lodge will accommodate 16 to 20 clients in the utmost comfort. All guest rooms and suites are individual cottages carefully positioned on the undulating site to take full advantage of the wonderful views of the Virunga Volcanoes whilst retaining as much privacy as possible. Both the bar and dining room have extensive outdoor decks from which our guests can enjoy the spectacular views. Double thickness walls maintain the warmth from the fireplaces when it is cold outside, and keep the rooms cool in the warmer weather during the day. With its siting at the base of the mountain, it makes for a good base for gorilla trekking. The lodge is built and operated by Governors’ Camp while it is owned by the community trust SACOLA, which uses rentals and community fees from the lodge to drive socio-economic and conservation initiatives in the communities adjacent to the National Park.
