Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge

Volcanoes National Park, Rwanda

Gold price level

Mango Opinion

A lovely option for gorilla trekking in Volcanoes National Park. The location is near the park so convenient albeit without the amazing views other lodges might have. We love the cozy rooms with fire places and nice large baths to help sooth your aches after a long day of hiking.

Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge situated in the foothills of the mighty Virungas, affords wonderful views of the volcanoes and the surrounding countryside. It has been beautifully constructed and appointed and the lodge is the perfect base from which to explore this unique and fascinating corner of Africa. The lodge comprises six cottages, two suites and one family suite. All are stone buildings with Rwandese terracotta tile roofs, and feature large sitting areas, fireplaces, stylish en-suite bathrooms with a dressing room and a shaded veranda. The main area has a sitting room, dining room, library, and a responsible tourism awareness room. Three large fireplaces provide warmth and all rooms are finished with a polished wooden floor. Two patio areas afford wonderful and dramatic views to the Virunga Volcanoes and the surrounding lowland farmland.

The main attraction of Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge is its proximity to the Virungas and the Parc National des Volcans where clients trek on foot to see the magnificent Mountain Gorilla - perhaps one of the most dramatic, thrilling and poignant wildlife experiences possible. There are, however, a myriad of other excursions on offer to our clients. These include treks to see the fascinating Golden Monkeys, which are found in the bamboo forests on the slopes of the Virunga Mountains. They provide an entertaining viewing as they leap from tree to tree and frolic in the open clearings of the forest.
