Stunning mist-covered volcanic peaks overshadowing sprawling plantations with the lushness of the montane vegetation is the sight that will greet you on your arrival at the luxurious Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge. Tucked away in the foothills of the Virunga Mountains of the Volcanoes National Park, this intimate boutique accommodation is perfect for discerning holidaymakers. It has an eclectic decor that combines elements of an elegant colonial era interspersed with authentic Rwandan art. The brightly woven rugs, artifacts, baskets, masks and other curios scattered about subtly discourses to you about the spirit of the country while wicker and wrought-iron furniture coupled with hardwood floors take you back to a bygone era. The central lounge area located inside the main cottage structure includes plush seating areas with a large fireplace where you can relax and enjoy books from the library. You could also spend some vacation time on the verandah outside or in the game room. The Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge is spread over an area of 17 acres and offers just 9 cottages and suites to frill tourists. These rooms are scattered around the property and are accessible by way of a pleasant walk through the estate with sightings of some of the 178 species of birds native to the Albertine Rift forests of the Volcanoes Safari Park (view map). Each of the cottages is made of stone with terracotta tiles for the roofs and is shielded from the others by sheer distance and greenery to accord perfect privacy. You can choose from one of the 6 cottages and 2 suites. The lodge also offers 1 family suite that comprises of two rooms that open onto a shared patio. Relax in the seating arrangements inside the room or on the verandah or open up the hammock for a leisurely nap. Ensuite bathrooms include handmade toiletries, twin vanities, bathtub and a handmade shower stall.

Dine on delicious, gourmet meals cooked to perfection accompanied by fine wines in the dining area in the main house. Choose from a wide range of wholesome dishes as you enjoy the warm ambiance created by the hardwood floors, fireplace, and more native art. To view more of the bird variety that you see around the lodge, you must travel along the distinct trails. Each of these will take you to see a different aspect of the beautiful biomes of the reserve complete with flora, insect life, and other smaller creatures. You can hike the slopes of the Mounts Bisoke and Karisimbi or explore the superb underground caves at Musanze with their bat residents. The highlight of your safari trip is undoubtedly, your meeting with the famous mountain gorillas of Rwanda. View these magnificent primates in their natural habitat, and you will be amazed by the quiet intelligence with which they stare back at you. But, do take care to carefully observe their etiquettes of family gorilla life and follow the instructions of your experienced guide. You might also need the assistance of porters for carrying photographic and other equipment over the steep and muddy trails. You must trail out to the village of Iby'Iwacu to meet with the lovely native people. Learn their art of making medicines from local plants and perhaps, take a lesson in creating some of their intricate artifacts or dance costumes.

What We Like About Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge

  1. Located at Kinigi by the foothills of the Virunga Mountains and closest to the Volcanoes Park. Thus, it offers easy accessibility to the base point of your trekking tour that is a short 15 minutes' drive away
  2. Offers stunning views of the mountains with sprawling, fertile community fields spread below them. Some of the profits of your stay over directly benefit the locals
  3. The first luxurious lodge at Volcanoes National Park. With just 9 cottages and suites, the lodge offers guests the discreet, boutique experience
  4. Excellent service. The staff are very friendly and go out of their way to assist with cleaning footwear, doing laundry, serving meals, providing hot water bottles, and lighting fires in the room
  5. Serves sumptuous, wholesome and very delicious cuisine

Things To Note When Staying At Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge

  1. Although massages are available, an absence of a proper spa considering the establishment is an upmarket one
  2. Views can be variable with the rooms at higher elevations offering more expansive vistas of the Volcanoes Park
  3. Due to its elevated location, some guests might have to walk a steep pathway to reach the main reception and lounge area
  4. Offers a family cottage, but there are no activities designed especially for children given that gorilla tours are permitted for children over 15 only
  5. One of the few most expensive lodges for gorilla safaris in Rwanda. It seeks an affluent demographic who want the best of experiences
