The word bisate means ‘pieces’ in Kinyarwanda, describing how the cone was once whole but worn away by natural erosion.This is one of the most thrilling safari destinations in Africa, slated onthe edge of Volcanoes National Park in northwest Rwanda. Bisate Lodge is located in the midst of an amphitheater, and it has a very stunning natural environment.
Six conically formed thatched forest homes with big verandas giving out onto wonderful views of the surrounding peaks are hidden into the lush forest backdrop. The suites' traditional designs pay homage to Rwandan culture, while the luxurious interiors maximize comfort and warmth while making use of the breathtaking vistas. Each 91 square meter villa has a big yet intimate mix of a bedroom, reception space, and bathroom, all warmed by a central fireplace and with stunning views out onto your private deck towards Mount Bisok.
The stunning guest areas have floor-to-ceiling windows through which you may gaze at the world outside while enjoying a refreshing drink at the elegant bar or the contemporary wine cellar, which blends the old with the modern. Enjoy healthful farm-to-table dishes with wild honey, avocado, climbing beans, mango, kale, papaya, plantain, passion fruit, pineapple, macadamia nuts, and chilies, which combine traditional Rwandan flavors with current world cuisine. The onsite kitchen garden supplies fresh produce. Rwandan coffee is considered a highlight by many.
