Grocery Shopping in the Wilderness

Honey Ice-Cream from Magashi


Rounding up the Wilderness Kitchen recipes are some of our favourite desserts, including Magashi’s Honey Ice-Cream – we love this dessert for its sweet essence and fragrant aroma.


In Rwanda, Nyakinama village is famed for its bee-keeping, due to its location on the edge of Buhanga Forest – a natural habitat for bees. Many of the villagers boast two or three hives in their gardens and generate income through the sale of their honey – which is also popular for medical purposes and for brewing beer in the country.



Bisoke Lava Pudding


A Bisate Lodge pudding inspired by the arresting Mount Bisoke, a dormant volcano in the Virunga Mountains of the Albertine Rift, and a dominant feature of the views at Bisate, which neighbours Rwanda’s Volcanoes National Park​​. Mount Bisoke stands at 3711 m above sea-level. Interestingly, well-regarded and celebrated primatologist Dian Fossey’s research camp was stationed in this area in 1967. Enjoy this decadent dessert – a firm favourite of our Bisate guests!
