Sabyinyo Silverback LodgeSabyinyo Silverback Lodge

Dramatic. Thrilling. Poignant. The wildlife experience of a lifetime

Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge is located close to the headquarters of the Parc National des Volcans from where clients trek on foot to see the magnificent Mountain Gorilla – perhaps one of the most dramatic, thrilling and poignant wildlife experiences possible.

The lodge, situated in the foothills of the mighty Virungas, the chain of 15,000 ft volcanoes stretching through Rwanda, Uganda and the Democratic Republic of Congo, affords wonderful views of the volcanoes and the surrounding countryside. Guest cottages and the main lodge building have 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 is built and operated by Governors’ Camp. The lodge is owned by a Community Trust, SACOLA, which uses rentals and community fees from the lodge to drive socio-economic and conservation initiatives in the communities adjacent to the National Park. Governors’ Camp Rwanda Ltd would like to thank the African Wildlife Foundation, Gaylord and Cathy Layton of Tayside Associates LLC and the Rwanda Development Board for the vital role they played in the development of Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge. Governors’ Camp encourages all clients of Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge to find out more about African Wildlife Foundation at www.awf.org

October at Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge

October is always a busy month and we have been predictably full most of the month. Less predictable is the weather which has alternated between scorching hot mornings with our guests coming home tanned and happy and sudden outbursts of rain and even hail in the afternoons! What a lovely excuse to curl up with a book in front of a log fire in the rooms and wait for the clouds to clear and give you a chance for a picture of the sun setting over the Congo and the magnificent Mt Mikeno as a subject while you enjoy a cocktail before dinner?

Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge was the best lodge of the week, which we were sort of expecting. The rooms (small private cabins) are huge, comfortable, and very nice. Had a fireplace that was always lit and when we returned to the room.
