Wilderness Safaris Bisate Lodge
Reviewed 8 July 2017

Yes, most people are in Rwanda to go Gorilla Trekking, but Bisate could be a reason to go by itself. Ingrid and Rob make you feel right at home along with their entire staff. Everyone at the lodge wants to do more and make the experience even more memorable. The lodge itself is beyond words. Standing on the room (understatement) balcony, you can hear the sounds of the animals in the national park as well as the village in the distance (make sure you take the community walk with Alene to meet and experience the wonderful people outside the lodge). They way the lodge sits on the side of a mountain cannot be explained with words or photos The food was amazing and coming back to your room in the evening to a warm fire, was the perfect way to end the night. The mission statement of Wilderness Safaris is another reason my wife and I are already planning a African Safari with them.

Room Tip: There are only 6 and everyone of them is beyond words.

Dear Mike,

Thank you for your beautiful review and for being the first to review Wilderness Safaris Bisate Lodge. We are thrilled to see how much you enjoyed all the activities offered in camp including the brilliant community/ village visit. Wilderness Safaris has formed a partnership with the surrounding community which includes the purchase of the Bisate site from 103 community members, thus injecting $500 000 into the community. Some 200 people are temporarily employed in road and lodge construction and 24 community members being trained as staff. A community cooperative has been formed for equitable procurement of fresh produce and other goods from land adjacent to the site.

Thank you again
Wilderness Safaris

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Bisate Lodge is located in the natural amphitheatre of an eroded volcanic cone – the word bisate means ‘pieces’ in Kinyarwanda, describing how the cone was once whole but worn away by natural erosion. 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. ... more   less
