Bisate Lodge, a six-room sanctuary of wilderness and adventure, sets a new standard for luxury in Rwanda. The word 'bisate' means ‘pieces’ in Kinyarwanda, and describes the staccato beauty of the eroded landscape on which the lodge sits.
The lodge is a visionary conservation tourism project, with a focus on local community and indigenous reforestation. The six round villas have a fresh and fun feel: each comes with a tipped roof, walls clad with dried and woven grass matting, wooden floors and bright fabrics. Huge bathrooms have a black resin bath tub in the centre.
All meals are eaten in the restaurant or on the adjoining terrace.
Alongside gorilla trekking, there are also opportunities to see golden monkey troops, lava tunnels, local villages, and nearby lakes. Every guest is invited to participate in biodiversity conservation efforts and engage with the local community.

“This is the mountain gorilla motherland. The magnificent creatures roam freely in the park and Bisate Lodge offers daily treks to visit gorilla families in their natural habitat. Set in 42 hectares of land and with stunning views of Mount Bisoke, fun styling and a welcoming atmosphere, it’s the ideal base from which to explore this area and the wildlife.”
