The Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge is located on the northwest edge of Rwanda, in Ruhengeri, bordering the magnificent Volcanoes National Park (Parc des Volcans). Rwanda, in Central Africa, is the land of Dian Fossey's "Gorillas in the Mist," and is a premier wildlife, bird watching, and eco-tourism destination. Arrivals at the Kigali International Airport can expect a drive of 90 minutes to two hours to the Lodge.
