Reviews about Journeys Discovering Africa

Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge

overview

Safari Highlights

One of several lodges nestled at the foot of the volcanic Virungas range of mountains, Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge is a joint initiative between the Sabyinyo Community Lodge Association (SACOLA) and Governors Camps. Governors built and manage the lodge, and pay the local community a fee for every bed night utilised.

Stunning Cottages

There are five stone cottages, two suites and one family suite, roofed with locally made terracotta tiles, each with its own fireplace, bathtub, shower and double sink. The rooms are adjacent to the main dining and lounge areas, which themselves are luxuriously furnished with overstuffed sofas and hardwood furniture, all making for intimate and exclusive surroundings in which to spend your evenings.

Unparalleled Comfort

The lodge is at the top end of the scale for accommodations around the Virungas, and offers unsurpassed service for this part of Rwanda. It is one of the most comfortable places from which to track the Volcanoes National Park’s eight habituated mountain gorilla families.
