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

March at Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge

March has brought rain to the Volcanoes, thank fully only in the afternoons, allowing our guests to enjoy mostly dry gorilla treks. The Gorillas have moved down the slopes making treks to see them shorter. The Sabyinyo gorilla family were treated by the gorilla doctors for a respiratory illness and there have been interfamily fueds between the Agasha and Amahoro groups this month which our guests have witnessed.
