Africa’s leading safari tour operator, Wilderness Safaris recently announced the opening of the Bisate Lodge in the Republic of Rwanda. The luxury property, located next to Rwanda’s renowned Volcanoes National Park in Kinigi, offers the perfect base for mountain gorilla trekking.
Set in the heart of an amphitheatre formed by eroded volcanic cone, the Wilderness Safaris Bisate Lodge comprises of 6 conically shaped thached spacious ensuite villas with sweeping views of the Mikeno, Bisoke and Karisimbi Volcanoes. Each of the villas combines a bedroom with double bed, bathroom, floor-to-ceiling windows, large private deck and artisan hand crafted furnishings.
The lodge’s architectural and interior design echoes the country’s building tradition as used in the design of the Royal Palace of the Traditional Monarch. Asides Gorilla trekking, other activities and attractions in the area include: sighting of golden monkeys, the Twin Lakes of Buhondo and Burera, the Iby’wacu cultural village, the Musanze Caves and the grave of Dian Fossey.
Commenting on the opening, Wilderness Safaris chief operating officer, Grant Woodrow said;
“With only six luxurious forest villas, the real generosity of Bisate in the Rwandan context is the amount of private and exclusive space that surrounds the Lodge, sheltering it in a rare natural landscape brimming with Albertine Rift biodiversity and beauty.”
