Bistae Lodge is run by the luxury operator, Wilderness Safaris. With unique architecture you will set perched in a natural amphitheatre of volcanic rock with views out across Bisoke and Karisimbe Volcanoes. Dubbed on of Wildernesses ‘premium properties’ you will enjoy perfect luxury and fantastic service and attention to detail throughout.
The word ‘Bisate’ translates to pieces, as the lodge is situated in an extinct volcanic cone that has been eroded away into pieces! The lodge is well located just a 20-minute drive from the park HQ allowing for a great high-end base for your gorilla or golden monkey trekking.
Six opulent en-suite Forest Villas are warmed by a central fireplace and have breath-taking views from the deck. The main area comprises a lounge, dining and bar area, wine cellar and viewing deck. Both the architecture and interiors are rooted in Rwandan cultural traditions.
The aim of Bisate is to be a model of sustainable ecotourism in Rwanda. Its reforestation and rehabilitation project has each guest partnering with them in contributing to conservation and local community upliftment, with a positive impact on the iconic endangered mountain gorilla. The design of the rooms is based on the Kings Palace, however the thatch is created from recycled plastic making it more durable and insulated – perfect for those colder winter months!
This idyllic lodge is perfect for any high end traveller looking to experience a great eco-friendly lodge whilst enjoying the once in a lifetime experience of gorilla trekking in Rwanda.
