Wilderness Bisate Rwanda Camp Aerial View



Matchless wilderness thrills 

Wilderness Bisate is a sustainably luxurious rainforest-based lodge offering Africa's most thrilling wild primate experience.


Wilderness Bisate

An award-winning eco-chic rainforest lodge nestled in a mesmerising volcanic landscape.


Like giant birds’ nests tucked into the trees, the six Forest Villas that make up Wilderness Bisate at Volcanoes National Park are simply breath-taking. And arguably the finest base in Africa from which to trek to see the famous mountain gorillas of the Virungas. 

Wilderness Bisate Rwanda Guests Trekking Gear


Since opening in 2017, Bisate has racked up 34 awards and continues to inspire. Six sublime en-suite forest villas, designed as an homage to Rwandan royalty, overlook unforgettable vistas over brooding Bisoke, Karisimbi and Mikeno volcanoes. A wine cellar, library, spa, restaurant, and tree nursery, woven through with warm hospitality complete this natural wonder.

Bisate’s vegetable garden is an ecosystem intended to be sustainable and self-sufficient. Our menu comprises seasonal ingredients for freshness, the majority of which are from our own garden. We also support the communities already growing crops, and source our red-skinned and wonderfully starchy potatoes, as well as our eggs, organic and free range, from our neighbours.

Bisate’s Kwanda (day lounge) is the first of its kind in Rwanda. Located in Bisate’s organic vegetable garden, it’s the perfect space in which to gather yourself before your next adventure. Shower after a last trek, wander around the gardens, enjoy a healthy meal, or a soothing massage. Browse the curio shop for a hand-crafted Rwandan memento.


Wilderness Bisate Purpose Reforesting

A conservation tourism first

Unfenced. Untamed. Unrepeatable. Whether seeing gorillas forage in the Rwandan rainforest or the perspective you gain from an informative village visit, every minute of your stay at Bisate will remind you of our shared purpose in preserving and expanding these iconic wild lands. A model of conservation tourism, our reforestation project invites you to join us by planting a tree.
