Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge is situated on the edge of the Parc National des Volcans in North Western Rwanda. The altitude of the lodge is approximately 7,000 feet above sea level so the climate is generally cool, and the volcanoes rise to a height of almost 15,000 feet. The lodge has been designed and built by Governors Camp but is owned by a community trust called SACOLA.
The lodge comprises a main lodge building, including bar, dining room, library, games room, reception, shop and community awareness centre, and 2 guest suites, 5 cottages and one family complex. The lodge will accommodate 16 – 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. All guest cottages comprise sitting room, fire place, dressing room, large bathroom with all modern amenities and veranda.
Gorilla trekking is not the only activity on offer. Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge provides the perfect base from which to explore this fascinating area. You may wish to visit the bustling nearby market town of Ruhengeri, the beautiful lakes Kivu, Burera, Ruhondo and Karago, the genocide memorials, or the community and conservation projects organised by SACOLA.
