Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge


Stunning mist-covered volcanic peaks that overshadows sprawling plantations and the lushness of the mountain vegetation is the sight that will greet you on your arrival at the 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.
