BISATE LODGE

RWANDA, AFRICA

Rwanda is a compelling place where a turbulent past is today reconciled with thriving local cultures, a burgeoning tourism scene, and of course, the deeply treasured Volcanoes National Park.

 

This brand new lodge (opening in June 2017) is located just across the border from the famous Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. Nestled into the natural amphitheater of an eroded volcanic cone on stilts, Bisate will feature dramatic views of both Bisoke and Karisimbi volcanoes in the distance, while colorful birdlife and other small jungle creatures swoop from limb to limb just outside your private room.

Just a short drive from Volcanoes National Park, Bisate was designed with the wildlife-lover in mind. You'll spend your days trekking for the icon mountain gorillas that call this area home, as well as golden monkeys, bushbuck, black-fronted duiker, buffalo, and even the occasional elephant that wanders through the forests in this part of Africa. Over 300 bird species have been recorded on the Virunga Massif, of which 18 are Albertine Rift endemics, so keep your eyes towards the treetops as well!

Aside from what many guests call a life-changing experience with the mountain gorillas, you'll also get to interact with the locals at Iby'wacu village and explore other sights such as the Twin Lakes of Buhondo and Burera and the lava tunnels of the Musanze Caves. With so many incredible activities right out the front door, Bisate Lodge is set to become an Outside GO favorite for years to come.

"The word bisate means ‘pieces’ in Kinyarwanda, describing how the [volcano] cone was once whole but worn away by natural erosion."
