Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge
Hidden amongst the foothills of the spectacular Virungas — a chain of 15 000 foot volcanoes that lie in what is thought to be the heart of the legendary land of King Solomon’s mines, is the beautiful Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge.
Here, surrounded by the tropical forests of Rwanda, just a stone’s throw away from the renowned Parc National des Volcans, guests can unwind in one of five luxurious stone cottages, two suites or, for small groups, an elegant family suite — each with a large sitting room, fireplace, stylish ensuite bathroom and private veranda. Scrumptious menus can be savoured in the beautiful dining room and refreshing sundowners can be enjoyed on any one of the two patios that provide breathtaking views of the Virunga volcanoes.
After an adventure-filled day guests can retreat to the library cum games room or brush up on their knowledge in the responsible tourism/community awareness room. Adventures include hikes into the Parc National des Volcans in search of the majestic mountain gorilla and the enchanting golden monkey, cultural excursions, visits to the lava flows outside Ruhengeri town and vibrant village markets or to the Dian Fossey Memorial and Research Centre.
