Perched at 7,000 feet in the foothills of Rwanda’s Virunga Mountains, the Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge offers elegance and spectacular views over the volcanoes and the green countryside. It is also located just minutes away from the Volcaones National Park headquarters, where gorilla tracking safaris begin. Nine spacious individual cottages offer tranquility and a nod to regional traditions, having been constructed using local stone and Rwandese terra cotta tile. The decor reflects warm colors and natural textures, with throw rugs, plush furniture and splashes of strong geometric patterns. Surrounded by lush gardens, each en suite cottage has a private covered porch and a sitting area with a cozy fireplace. Among many inviting lodging details, muddy boots are cleaned daily after you’re finished trekking, and a hot water bottle is tucked into your bed each night.
The main lodge is replete with polished wood floors, cozy chairs for you to sink into, three large cracking fireplaces, a library, two inviting decks and a dining room. The lodge is owned by a Community Trust, SACOLA, which uses rentals and community fees from the lodge to drive socioeconomic and conservation initiatives in the communities adjacent to the national park.
