Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge

Classic A deluxe lodge or tented camp, almost all with swimming pools, excellent food and service, large nicely appointed rooms or tents with comfortable beds and tasteful decor; most of the lodges have air-conditioning and the tents are usually fan-cooled.

Sabyinyo Silverback is near park headquarters of Volcanoes National Park. Owned by the local community trust called SACOLA, the lodge comprises a main lodge building, including bar, dining room, library, games room, reception, shop and community awareness center, and two guest suites, five cottages and one family complex. All suites and individual cottages are carefully positioned on the undulating site to take full advantage of the wonderful views of the Virunga Volcanoes whilst retaining as much privacy as possible. Cottages are comprised of sitting room, fire place, dressing room, large bathroom with all modern amenities and veranda.

Gorilla trekking is not the only activity on offer. Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge provides the perfect base from which to explore this fascinating area. You may wish to visit the bustling nearby market town of Musanze, the beautiful lakes Kivu, Burera, Ruhondo and Karago, the genocide memorials, or the community and conservation projects organized by SACOLA.

**The lodge provides rain jackets, backpacks, gators, gloves and walking sticks for your convenience.
