Where to Stay in Rwanda

One of the most luxurious, sustainable and visionary places to stay in Rwanda is Wilderness Safaris’, Bisate Lodge.

Visitors will be blown away by the lodge’s location in the natural amphitheatre of an eroded volcanic cone. From the awe-inspiring views of the peaks of the Bisoke and Karisimbi volcanoes to the sweeping vistas of the forests of nearby Volcanoes National Park, the otherworldly surrounds reflect Africa in all her glory.

A Holistic Gorilla Experience

Most travel to Rwanda to see the majestic mountain gorillas that call it home. Bisate Lodge is within easy driving distance of the Park headquarters, which functions as a departure point for daily gorilla treks. Not only is the lodge a top location for gorilla tracking-, but it’s also committed to the conservation of the iconic endangered species through its active reforestation and rehabilitation projects.

Aside from tracking the habituated gorilla groups in the area, each guest at Bisate will contribute to the biodiversity conservation and community engagement initiatives that positively impact the lives of the fascinating creatures.

Accommodation at Bisate Lodge

The lodge can accommodate up to 12 guests in sumptuous en-suite rooms that offer unprecedented views of the surrounded natural landscape. The culture of surrounding rural Rwanda is woven into every detail, from the authentic décor to the five-star service.

Activities in the Area

When not tracking gorillas, Bisate guests can enjoy surrounding attractions such as Iby’wacu cultural village, the Twin Lakes of Buhondo and Burera, and the lava tunnels of the Musanze Caves. Bisate itself has extensive grounds that offer excellent birding opportunities, and lucky guests might spot the endemic golden monkey in the area and surrounds.
