Wilderness Sabyinyo

Volcanoes National Park, Rwanda

The pioneering Wilderness Sabiyinyo has led the way in Rwanda by being the first world-class, luxury lodge that is owned by the community surrounding the Volcanoes National Park. Operated by Wilderness, you will (without a doubt) experience an unforgettable stay. 

Be enthralled by the views of Karisimbi, Bisoke, Mikeno and Sabyinyo volcanoes; and enchanted with your spacious cottage or suite that boasts a sitting area, fireplace and lovely ensuite bathroom. We love the sustainably-sourced menus, with ingredients curated from the organic vegetable gardens. This is a great option for small groups, adventure travelers, or honeymooners.
