Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge


With breathtaking views and beautiful décor, this is the perfect base for a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

The experience at Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge is high quality yet homely. Built by Governors’ Camps and owned by a community trust, it’s run by a superb small team for whom nothing is too much trouble. The main lodge building has a cosy sitting room with snug, library/games room and a dining room. You can choose to dine with your fellow travellers, with everyone gathered together around a long table to share your day’s experience. Outdoors, two patio areas make the most of the dramatic view towards the Virunga Volcanoes. Eight stone cottages are stylish with traditional touches and have a large sitting area with fireplace, lovely bathroom, dressing room and terrace.
