Sabyinyo is Rwanda’s leading gorilla lodge. Located approximately three hours from the capital Kigali, Saybinyo Silverback Lodge is a stunningly located property with views over the Virunga Volcanoes range and the Parc National des Volcans. Arguably the finest gorilla lodge anywhere, this lodge is run by the famous Kenyan safari group Governors who operate some of the Masai Mara’s finest safari camps. Service levels and location are the best in the area by far.
Sabyinyo - The Details
Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge is situated on the edge of the Parc National des Volcans in North Western Rwanda, in an area of 11 hectares with views towards the Parc National des Volcans, and its 5 volcanoes.
All guest cottages are privately situated in the folds of the hills, each with its own view. The volcanic views can be enjoyed from the outdoor decks of the bar and the dining room. Accommodation comprises 5 cottages, 2 suites and 1 family suite alongside the landscaped gardens.
The rainforests of the Virunga Volcanoes are the last refuge of the Mountain Gorilla. The slopes of the volcanoes provide a natural setting for a wildlife experience – to see the Mountain Gorilla in its natural habitat. Roughly half of the world’s wild population of Mountain Gorillas are resident on the Rwandan slopes of the Virungas.
Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge is the perfect base to explore this corner of Africa. Clients may wish to visit the nearby market town of Ruhengeri, the beautiful lakes Kivu, Burera, Ruhondo and Karago, the genocide memorials, as well as experience some incredible bird-viewing. All in all, the ultimate gorilla safari.
