Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge

Volcanoes National Park, Rwanda

Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge is a joint venture between the local community who own the lodge, and Governor's Camps, the Kenyan company who have designed and built it.

The eight cottages, built in local stone, are spacious and comfortable, with fully equipped bathrooms, and magnificent views of the park.

Accommodation Reviews


  • 'Our driver/guide, Joel (not sure on the spelling as this is my guess) was at the airport and picked us up.  He was very good and also did his very best to do what we wanted and to help us out.  Always punctual (just like Moses above) and we enjoyed having him as our driver/guide.
  • Joel took us to lunch at the same hotel I was at 24 years ago (and also the same one that “Hotel Rwanda” was based on).  It was very nice sitting there before our relatively short drive on very nice roads (compared to Uganda...).
  • Sabinyo Silverback Lodge:  What can I say?  It was FANTASTIC.  We wanted to move in and stay there.  The service and the room was incredible.  The food was very good but somewhat limited in selection.  I didn’t know wine was included so I had a funny conversation trying to get a wine list with prices with the waiter patiently telling me to just take a bottle any bottle.  The lodge went out of their way to help us enjoy the gorilla viewing.  They lent Sandy nice boots which amazingly fit her, gaiters, and gloves which were greatly appreciated since she didn’t bring any.  At the end of the hikes, the staff insisted on taking our boots and gaiters and cleaning them (they did such a good job that I wanted them to clean our other shoes as well – ha ha ha).  The house steward brought us up wine to drink outside our room (and lunch the second day when we were so late).  We really enjoyed the fireplaces in the room and in the lodge.  I give this place a 110% rating (and I have never done that).
  • Gorilla viewing:  The two days were well worth it since we saw two different gorilla groups.  It was a bit of a slog through lots of stinging nettles the second day and it took over 6 hours of hiking but this group of gorillas (Amahoro group) was around 20 and had 3 silverbacks.'

'The Nomad Lodge (Lamai) is very well run. Beautiful, fantastic, really really good. The couple who manage it is lovely. The Nairobi hotel near the airport  (Ole Sereni) was very good. Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge at PNV is very good. Loved the Gorillas!

We really enjoyed Arusha Coffee Lodge. Greystoke Mahale was great. We loved the pet Pelican! Lamai Serengeti was worth paying for. Top drawer!. I've always wanted to see the migration and we saw a BIG one - a major crossing - some ten thousand Wildebeest crossing, with Crocs taking some of them. Standard of the accommodations and hospitality was fantastic. We will go back!'
