Wilderness Bisate

Travel + Leisure, a trusted resource for millions of travellers around the globe, has just announced their 2023 list of the world’s Top 500 Hotels – and we’re really proud that Wilderness Bisate has made the cut.


Each year, Travel + Leisure readers across the globe are asked to vote for their favourite destinations in the publication’s World’s Best Awards survey, with The Top Hotels in the World drawn from those results.

We’re grateful for this recognition as it plays such an important part in bringing new guests to see what Bisate has to offer, and thereby enabling us to continue to make a positive difference to conservation and its neighbouring communities.


Award-winning Bisate in Rwanda is not only arguably the finest base in Africa from which to trek to see the mountain gorillas of the Virunga Mountains, it also embraces a nourishing Earth-to-plate food journey, visionary reforestation programme, community initiatives, and rich wildlife, with a fierce passion to conserve and protect the beauty of this land, and all who call it home. 


Along with its traditionally-inspired design, superlative hospitality and dedicated team, Bisate presents a truly unique experience. Its six en-suite Forest Villas pay homage to Rwandan royalty, and are complemented by a wine cellar, library, spa, restaurant, tree nursery and first-of-its-kind Kwanda day lounge. Since opening in 2017, Bisate has racked up 34 awards and continues to inspire.


The full T+L 500 list has been published in the May issue of Travel + Leisure and on Apple News+.
