Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge kicked-off their 10th anniversary year in 2018 with a brand new look!
2017 was a very busy year for Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge. Throughout the year extensive refurbishment works were ongoing at the lodge, upgrading both its front and back of house. The renovations have made the Sabyinyo guest experience even more exceptional. The new look is fresh, elegant and contemporary, with accents of modern African design coupled with chic country living. The Sabyinyo team is thrilled with the results and hope that guests will like them as much as they do.
One room that received a fantastic upgrade was the Family Room. This now has a beautiful wooden deck verandah extending out from between the two rooms, with lovely outdoor furniture. The door of the twin room was also moved to face outward to create more privacy.
Alongside the complete revamp of furniture and furnishings, the team also focused their attention on the ‘nuts and bolts’ of what makes the lodge work. All the plumbing and electrics have been upgraded, with hot water systems improved. Space heaters and carpets were added to the rooms, to make them cocoons of warmth! And lovely outdoor furniture which allows for excellent outdoor dining opportunities.
A little more about Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge:
Opened in June 2008 by President Kagame, Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge is uniquely community-owned, with lease and community fees totalling $3.1 million over the years allowing the neighbouring SACOLA community to invest and develop socio-economic initiatives to ensure everyone enjoys the benefits of high-end tourism.
Guests to Sabyinyo are warmly welcomed to enjoy a unique cultural experience with a visit to the local community, immersing themselves in Rwandan culture and seeing first-hand the achievements of community-partnered tourism. Gorilla trekking is not the only soul-stirring experience to be had here.
