Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge is situated in the foothills of the mighty Virunga’s, the chain of 15,000ft volcanoes stretching through Rwanda, Uganda and the Democratic Republic of Congo. The Lodge is some 3 kilometers from the main entrance to the Parc National des Volcans in Northwest Rwanda near the border with Uganda and the Democratic Republic of Congo. The lodge is a comfortable 2-hour drive from central Kigali. The site itself is approximately one kilometer from the Park boundary on the gentle foothills of Sabyinyo, one of the most impressive of the five volcanoes visible from the site. From the Lodge our clients have magnificent views to the verdant slopes of the Virunga Volcanoes to the North and over the agricultural lowlands to the South. Our clients can make the short journey to the Park headquarters each morning for their gorilla trek in only a few minutes, and the Lodge is a perfect base from which to explore this unique and fascinating corner of Africa.
Sabyinyo is celebrating 10 years of working with our community lodge association SACOLA and with over US$ 2 million generated for the community trust by the lodge there have been some remarkable achievements to date. We are very proud of our association with SACOLA and the fantastic work they have done and continue to do within the community and SACOLA also completed some new projects this month and Sabyinyo welcomed new managers Phil and Charlie this month who are settling in very nicely.
