Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge


Luxury accommodation, one step closer to the gorillas

Situated only one kilometre from the edge of the Parc National des Volcanes (Volcanoes National Park) in northern Rwanda, Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge is the newest lodge catering to gorilla seekers. Sister camp to the popular luxury Governors' Camp in Kenya's Masai Mara, the lodge features the same attention to detail, luxurious finishes and well trained staff that the more established Governors is known for. 

At 2,150 metres it's not surprising that all of the separately positioned cottages have spectacular views from their private balconies. At this height it can get quite misty and cool, so the fireplace, warm bedding and warm smiles will all make you feel at home and comfortable. At the main lodge you can relax at the bar or in the dining room, which of course all feature amazing views. For those who are interested there is a community awareness centre where you can find out more about efforts to protect the endangered gorilla as well as socio-economic development efforts since Rwanda's most recent troubles.

The primary reason to visit this area is of course for the gorillas. Volcanoes National Park is home to some 300 individuals and there are five habituated families that you can visit. All hikes leave from the visitors centre which is only a kilometre from the Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge. Remember that park fees and gorilla tracking permits are fairly expensive and often cannot be bought ahead of time. Fortunately the lodge will help you every step of the way and your Rhino Africa consultant will be able to tell you much more about what is required.
