Bisate Lodge Blogs

Located in northern Rwanda and situated next to the stunning Volcanoes National Park, Bisate Lodge (meaning ‘pieces’ of eroded volcano in Kinyarwanda), blends beautifully into the lush mountain landscape. Recently opened, this innovative lodge was born out of a desire to increase the population of the Critically Endangered mountain gorilla, along with promoting high-end ecotourism in Rwanda. Comprising a cluster of just six conically-shaped thatched villas, welcoming a maximum of twelve guests, Wilderness Safaris ‘sophisticated and sustainable fully-inclusive lodge sits in a dramatic natural setting – that of an eroded volcanic cone — providing luxurious interiors with breathtaking vistas from the viewing deck.

Along with affording guests with the incredible opportunity to trek and observe habituated groups of mountain gorillas with expert guides (subject to the purchase of a permit in advance), visitors can also enjoy nature walks, guided birding, tea and coffee tasting, community village visits, tree planting and Golden Monkey Treks (subject to the purchase of permit in advance). As the best location for a holistic gorilla experience in Rwanda, guests can embark on an enriching wildlife-encounter amidst the spectacular backdrop of the brooding Bisoke, Karisimbi and Mikeno volcanoes. Whilst the terrain and trek may be strenuous, the remarkable sight of a mighty Silverback cuts a commanding pose and is guaranteed to reward visitors with an unforgettable experience of a lifetime.
