Bisate Lodge
Nicholas Plewman Architects and Associates - Rwanda
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. It boasts the best location for a holistic gorilla experience in Rwanda along with the spectacular views of the brooding Bisoke, Karisimbi and Mikeno Volcanoes. The high standards of the accommodation and service create the most exclusive and one of the only sustainable luxury offerings in the area.
