Bisate Lodge

98 Editor Rating*
Scale of 90-100

Located at the edge of Volcanoes National Park, this exceptional ecolodge is set in an eroded extinct volcanic cone, 60 miles northwest of Kigali. The six thatched hillside villas feature stylish living rooms with stone fireplaces, wooden floors, furniture and textiles created by local artisans, and large baths with oval tubs and separate showers. The stunning main building encompasses a restaurant, bar and wine cellar. Diversions offered by the hotel include guided nature walks, birding excursions and coffee, wine and tea tastings. Daily gorilla treks are available from park headquarters (children under age 15 are not permitted to visit the mountain gorillas) for an additional fee of $1,500 per permit. Trips to Dian Fossey’s original research camp, as well as more-gentle hikes to visit the endangered golden monkeys in a nearby bamboo forest, can be arranged.
