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 volcanoes stretching through Rwanda, Uganda, and Democratic Republic of Congo, affords wonderful views.

Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge is a perfect base for people heading into trek to see the gorillas. Every day Volcanoes National Park allows guests to see habituated gorillas for one hour at a time. There are ten habituated families that range between 7-35 members each. The lodge, with its well-appointed amenities, is ideal pre and post trekking.

We love this lodge! This is our top choice for accommodation when people go gorilla trekking for its amenities, standard, and location. The views are impressive and the lodge is an excellent property all-around. The location is the most ideal for those waking up early to see the famous mountain gorillas.
