Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge is located in the Virunga Mountains area of northern Rwanda.

Situated 1km north of the park headquarters at Kinigi village, this is the closest lodge to the forest and is undoubtedly the premium location in the area. The lodge itself is centered on a pleasant bungalow containing the main public areas, plus just eight cosy guest cottages ranged either side, one of which is a slightly larger suite, another a family suite. The main activity is gorilla tracking, supported by golden monkey tracking, both close at hand. Village visits and other walking options are also possible.

Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge is arguably the only place in the area to offer reliably high levels of comfort and service. It is undeniably expensive, but nonetheless delivers consistently excellent guest reviews.
