"...places that touch your soul."

Parc National des Volcans, Rwanda

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.

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?
