Bisate Lodge

Gorilla trekking in northwestern Rwanda - like the honeycombs of a beehive, the exclusive suites of Bisate Lodge rise from the densely forested slopes of an extinct volcanic crater. With the pristine jungle idyll right before your eyes, you quickly realize why around a third of the world's mountain gorilla population is located here, of all places, at the foot of the Bisoke and Krisimbi volcanoes. The neighbouring Volcanoes National Park, with its lush cloud forests, lush plains and dramatic volcanic cones, provides an ideal habitat for the gentle giants of the jungle, who live here together in several family groups and can be visited under the guidance of a knowledgeable ranger. Step into an unforgettable nature experience and discover the magic of Africa.

With their traditional construction and honeycomb-like shape, Bisate Lodge's suites, furnished with locally produced furniture made from natural materials, stand out from other safari accommodations at first glance. Protective and cosy, the exclusive suites' domed roofs woven from natural fibres drape over the combined living/sleeping area with stave parquet flooring and floor-to-ceiling mullioned windows. Enjoy the peace and quiet in a wing chair by the crackling fireplace, or let your gaze wander over the magnificent natural landscape from your own balcony. In the chic bathroom with semi-open cut, modern design fittings and a free-standing bathtub await you.

Conveniently located adjacent to the Volcanoes National Park, Bisate Lodge presents itself as an ideal base for exciting tracking tours on the trails of the rare mountain gorillas. The Bisoke and Krisimbi volcanoes provide a dramatic backdrop for extended hikes and walks. In addition to the majestic mountain gorillas, you can also spot other wildlife, such as golden monkeys, elephants and exotic birds. On the Dian Fossey Trail, you can hike to the grave of the famous US zoologist and gorilla researcher and visit the research station she established.

Primarily, a stay at Bisate Lodge is ideally suited for a gorilla tracking tour, where you will be driven by your guide to the headquarters of the national park in the early morning and assigned to a group with a maximum of 8 participants. Together you will then set off on the drive and further walk to the respective gorilla family. For about an hour, you can enjoy the presence of the highly evolved primates - an experience for the ages. Afterwards, you will return to the lodge with unforgettable impressions in your luggage. You would like to learn more about the sustainability projects of the accommodation? Visit the tree nursery and contribute to the reforestation of the region by planting a tree yourself. An equally rewarding experience: a trip to a nearby farming village.
