Indulge your inner Dian Fossey at Rwanda's five-star Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge, which offers visitors the rare and emotional experience of viewing mountain gorillas in their natural habitat.

There are vacations, and then there are travel experiences that will remain in your memory forever. Expect the latter when you enter the Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge in Rwanda. Tucked high into the foothills of the Virunga mountain range, this five-star lodge features individual cottages with decks and fireplaces. In the main lodge, meet your new neighbors and partake in delicious wine and food.

Come morning, your butler will wake you with coffee and biscuits, assist with gear, and be ready to clean clothing and boots upon your return. You're about to hike into the National Volcano Park and visit mountain gorillas.

Multiple gorilla families live in the area, including the largest known Silverback in the world. To see these animals in their natural habitat is surely one of the most thrilling wildlife experiences possible. Best of all, the Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge is operated by a community trust that works to further conservation and protection initiatives in the park.
