Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge
Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge. Wonderfully secluded in the foothills of massive dormant volcanoes, Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge is just around the corner from Parc National des Volcans and a great base for extensive gorilla tracking. With the temperate climate and lush tropical vegetation, the proximity of northwestern Virunga Mountains of Rwanda ensures that spectacular views abound from this lodge.
Offering five double cottages, two suites and one family cottage, all Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge's units feature private verandas, en-suite bathrooms and lounges with cosy fireplaces. While all bedrooms have large beds as well as dressing rooms, the family cottage boasts an additional bedroom and bathroom. Made from stone, the cottages have Rwandese terracotta roof tiles, and landscaped gardens surround the buildings. Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge restaurant and bar offer delicious meals which can be enjoyed outside on the decks during summer's warm weather, or next to the dining room's crackling fireplace in winter. Delicious packed picnic lunches are also available on request and are the perfect accompaniment for uninterrupted days of hiking.
Although mountain gorillas are the main drawcard here, birding enthusiasts would be delighted to find no less than 650 species here, and the breathtaking lakes in the area are also worth visiting at Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge.
