Bisate Lodge is a visionary eco-friendly lodge which champions luxury and stylish accommodation while retaining all the credentials of a traditional eco lodge.

The lodge sits adjacent to Volcanoes National Park, home to the iconic endangered mountain gorilla, and acts as the perfect base for mountain gorilla trekking. Prior to its opening the development was a visionary conservation and community based project for over two years, the first phase of which was the indigenous reforestation of the two hectare site.

The lodge boasts only six exclusive rooms, all offering spectacular views of the brooding Bisoke, Karisimbi and Mikeno volcanoes. Despite retaining the inherent environmental principles of Bisate Lodge, all of the rooms come with luxurious en suite facilities and ensure that guest's comfort and privacy is paramount. The rooms are thatched style pods which camouflage seamlessly into the surrounding landscape, inside they combine natural wood and bamboo materials with artistic and plush material touches.

The extensive wine cellar and contemporary yet authentic design of the social and dining areas mean Bisate Lodge is also offering its guests a really unique Rwandan stay.

In terms of activity, guests can explore nearby trails on mountain bikes, immerse themselves in the traditional life of local communities on visits to Bisate Village, and participate in indigenous tree planting programmes at the nursery. However the prime attraction is certainly the guided wildlife spotting excursions on offer here, home to abundant birdlife and of course the mountain gorilla this is an African nature lovers dream.
