Bisate Lodge in Rwanda enjoys a truly dramatic natural setting at the heart of an amphitheatre formed by eroded volcano cones.. Architecturally designed and decorated to pay homage to Rwandan traditions and culture, the lodge is the perfect combination of contemporary luxury and authentic heritage.
Six conically shaped thatched forest villas are tucked into the lush forest setting with spacious verandas opening out onto magnificent views of the surrounding peaks. The traditional shapes of the suites are a nod to Rwandan culture, while the sumptuous interiors maximise comfort and warmth while making the most of the scenic views. Each 91 square metre villa consists of a generous yet intimate combination of bedroom, reception space and bathroom, all warmed by a central fireplace and with breathtaking views out across your private deck towards Mount Bisoke. Each villa has been designed to maximise the comfort and experience of its guest whilst upholding high environmental and cultural principles, adding to its individuality.
The Volcanoes National Park is located along the western branch of the East African Rift – one of the most important biodiversity hotspots on the continent that is home to over 60 bird and mammal species found nowhere else on earth. The most well-known and celebrated of these is the mountain gorilla, and you will have the opportunity of encountering one of 10 habituated family groups inside the park.
