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.

If you're unsure whether it's worth the expense to trek with the gorillas in Rwanda, be assured that this 6-suite hillside retreat, a stone's-throw from the Park and soon to be within the expanded Park grounds, makes the journey an absolute must. Beginning with Hadley and Jomi,

The lodge itself is truly spectacular, the design has made the most of the views whilst still making it ''real'' being set amongst the village. Wonderful service, delicious food and all details taken care of - from supplying gaiters to having a wet room to clean boots and

Dear ritajeff, The overall design concept for Bisate is based on the principle that ‘purpose is the new luxury’, with the vision being to create a world-class ecotourism venture that will make a far-reaching positive impact on more than ‘just’ the Critically Endangered mountain gorilla. Bisate not only offers guests something completely unique to the Rwandan landscape but a lodge that is steeped in local design, culture and traditional architecture. We are thrilled to see that this was a stand out point for you during your journey with us. We hoppe you will visit us again soon. Kind regards Wilderness Safaris
