Scale of 90-100
Remote ecolodge set at the edge of Volcanoes National Park in an eroded extinct volcanic cone, 60 miles northwest of Kigali. The six thatched hillside villas feature large and exceptionally stylish living rooms with stone fireplaces, wooden floors, furniture and textiles created by local artisans, and large baths with oval tubs and separate walk-in showers. The main building encompasses a restaurant, bar and wine cellar. On-site activities include guided nature walks, birding excursions and coffee and tea tastings. Daily gorilla treks are available from park headquarters (children under age 15 are not permitted to visit the mountain gorillas). Visits to Dian Fossey’s original research camp and more gentle hikes to visit the endangered golden monkeys endemic to the area in a nearby bamboo forest can be arranged.

Everything. This is a sensational lodge. If you have a bucket list, put this place at the top of it.
The seemingly endless steep steps can be wearing, but the only really disagreeable thing about Bisate is the pain of leaving.
