Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge is situated in the foothills of the mighty Virungas, the chain of 15,000 ft volcanoes stretching through Rwanda, Uganda and the Democratic Republic of Congo. The lodge offers wonderful views of the volcanoes and the surrounding countryside.
The lodge is only minutes away from the headquarters of the Parc National des Volcans from where clients trek on foot to see the magnificent mountain gorilla - perhaps one of the most dramatic, thrilling and poignant wildlife experiences possible.
In the Park National des Volcans there are 8 families of mountain gorilla living on the slopes of the Virunga volcanoes that you can trek to see.
Gorilla treks take place in the morning and depart from the Park headquarters at around 7.30 am. Prior to departure you are given a briefing by Park staff, assigned a gorilla family to visit and rangers to guide you. The treks take place on the slopes of the Virunga volcanoes and clients should be in good physical condition as some of the trek can be physically demanding.
The trek normally lasts between 2 and 5 hours depending on the location of the gorilla family and a maximum of 8 visitors are allowed per gorilla family.
