Thursday the 21st of January was a great day at Bisate as the construction team was able to resume work on the lodge’s amazing new Day Lounge. It’s very exciting to be able to continue with this project after having to put it on hold for several months due to COVID-19. Soon the Bisate Kwanda Day Lounge will be available to all our guests who arrive early or depart later from the lodge.
However, we weren’t sitting still during the months that we could not construct the lounge, and the Bisate team has developed a beautiful organic vegetable garden. It won’t be long before our guests will be having lunch surrounded by magnificent fresh local produce.
Once the Kwanda is completed, our early arrivals and later departures will be able to freshen up, shower, enjoy a relaxing massage, change, and have a meal and a drink or two, all in supreme Bisate-style comfort. Guests arriving earlier than noon can make use of the Kwanda before heading to the lodge to check in. Check-out time from Bisate Lodge is usually 10:30, but now guests who are not departing straight away can take advantage of all the lounge’s amenities until the latest departure time of 15:30.
Additionally, guests who depart after their trek, can have their boots cleaned while they relax and compare stories of an unforgettable encounter, before heading on to their next destination.
The Bisate Kwanda Day Lounge's organic vegetable garden is based on the concept of an ecosystem intended to be sustainable and self-sufficient.
