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

June at Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge

This month Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge celebrated 10 years of operations having opened our doors to our first guests on the 21st June 2008. We held an event at the lodge to celebrate 10 successful years of co-operation. Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge is Rwanda's first community owned lodge and in the 10 years we have been in operation the lodge has generated over US$3 million for the local community which has been spent on development projects which have made a great impact on thousands of people living in the surrounding community.

Thank you for all of your work on this trip. It worked out very well. We had a wonderful time in Rwanda as well as Seychelles with all of the transports going without a hitch. Yes, we did get to see the gorillas and they were fantastic.
