Bisate Lodge

Overview

Bisate Lodge is located in the natural amphitheatre of an eroded volcanic cone – the word bisate means ‘pieces’ in Kinyarwanda, describing how the cone was once whole but worn away by natural erosion. The area has dramatic views of the peaks of the volcanoes Bisoke, Karisimbi and Mikeno rearing up through the Afro-alpine forests of nearby Volcanoes National Park. Six sumptuous en-suite rooms maximise comfort, warmth and views while retaining environmental principles and reflecting the culture of surrounding rural Rwanda.

Bisate is within easy driving distance of Park Headquarters, from where gorilla treks depart daily. Its vision of reforestation and rehabilitation means that each guest is invited to participate in our biodiversity conservation efforts, as well as engage and meet the local community – in addition to learning about and making a far-reaching positive impact on an iconic Critically Endangered species: the mountain gorilla.

Highlights

Our Thoughts

From the same people behind the Seychelles' ultra luxurious North Island, Bisate Lodge has set a new standard of luxury for lodges in Rwanda. A truly extraordinary property.

  • Bar/Lounge
  • WiFi

Each  of the 91 square metre Forest Villas consists of a generous yet intimate combination of bedroom, reception space and bathroom, all warmed by a central fireplace and with breath taking views out across a private deck towards Mount Bisoke.

  • Gorilla trekking
  • Day treks to the top of volcanoes
  • Visits to the crater lake on Mount Bisoke
  • Visits to local villages
  • Hikes to the former research station at Karisoke, the base where American naturalist Dian Fossey carried out her research on gorillas.

Children are welcome, however primate trekking is only open to guests 15 and older.
