One of the most beautifully designed lodges in Rwanda, Bisate’s stylish rooms echo the chambers traditionally crafted for the country’s royal families. Thatched and rounded, they envelop you in a cosy cocoon that is perfect to return to after a day of gorilla trekking in Volcanoes National Park.
The vistas reach all the way to active Mount Bisoke and show exactly why Rwanda is known as the land of a thousand hills. Although mountain gorillas and golden monkeys are the showstoppers, look out for smaller creatures like the Ruwenzori side-striped chameleon, black-fronted duiker antelope and 13 endemic bird species. And, if your luck is in, Bisate’s private camera traps could pick up a silverback coming to inspect the grounds!
