Governors' Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge

Volcanoes National Park, Rwanda

Make Governors' Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge part of your safari from

The lodge is only minutes away from 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 15,000 ft volcanoes stretching through Rwanda, Uganda and the Democratic Republic of Congo, affords wonderful views of the volcanoes and the surrounding countryside. Guest cottages and the main lodge building have been beautifully constructed and appointed and the lodge is the perfect base from which to explore this unique and fascinating corner of Africa. The lodge is built and operated by Governors’ Camp and all fees and rentals are used towards a community trust. 

Warm, inviting with extremely personal service. Activities on offer are unbeatable, so spending a few days at Sabyinyo is well worth it.
