The managers Finely and Wendy make the stay at the lodge perfect. They are warm and welcoming and give great advise on the trekking in the area. The food is fabulous and service is first rate. The rooms are quite dark and need refreshing but they are planning a refurb in a few months. The water pressure in the shower... More

As with the other Governors facilities in Kenya this one does hospitality extremely well. Very friendly staff, well managed with a level of personal service, good food and comfortable lodges. I have always loved the idea of an early morning wakeup call with coffee delivered and your own fire in your lodge.A unique experience. Only negative is the steep walk... More

Never ever get tired of this place. There is an allure to it that simply seems to be pulling be back to the place wherever in the world I may be. The climate, the vegetation, the home-away-from home catching feeling, the calmness. Too irresistible. This could be the perfect spot for honeymooning couples.

This lovely lodge was a great home for us during our recent gorilla trekking adventure. Managers Finley and Wendy welcomed us with genuine warmth and concern regarding our every need - the food and service throughout exceeded all expectation.

Staying here made the entire gorilla trek experience a joy. Seeing the gorillas in their natural habitat was extraordinary. Coming back to Sabyinyio Silverback Lodge made it even more so. The staff, food and accomodation were all excellent. Only way to go!

Lodge is excellent only one small fault a lot of steps to the reception,need to build a path so golf carts can take clients up to the lodge.ideal for seeing the gorillas.everyone eats on one large table so you meet many other guests which is always interesting

We stayed at the Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge for 2 nights in January 2015. The lodge has very convenient access to the Volcanoes National Park for gorilla trekking and lodge services are designed to complement these treks. There seems to be some disagreement in other reviews as to the "luxury" status of the lodge. In my opinion this is not a... More

This is a gorgeous setting with a wonderful staff. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and the dining was excellent. It is very convenient to the gorilla trekking and they provide gaiters, gloves and rain gear if necessary. They also clean your boots and have them ready for you next trek.

Staff, accommodations, service and food were excellent. Viewing the gorillas was awesome but you must be in good shape. Even the easy trek can be very challenging. The gorillas can be evasive. A porter is a must. They deserve a generous tip; they earn it!

Stunning views, cozy rooms with fireplaces, a beautiful lodge and dining room and unparalleled staff. The food is delicious and served in style. I highly recommend this lodge to everyone visiting the Park.
