If you go into the alpine forests of Rwanda, you can find a cluster of what looks at first glance like round straw huts—except they’re nestled into the eroded volcanic core of Kinyarwanda.

This is the Bisate Lodge, where visitors get dramatic views of the Bisoke, Karisimbi, and Mikeno volcanoes via six luxurious suites designed to blend right into the wildlife.

From here, visitors can catch a glimpse and take a tour to see the iconic, and critically endangered, mountain gorilla.

Thee are also 178 bird species—including unique species like the Archer’s robin chat, mountain black boubou, strange weaver—and a plethora of squirrels, elephant, buffalo, jackals. and the golden monkey.

And inside the camps, the designers spared no expense to make the living spaces sumptuous.

“Six sumptuous en-suite rooms maximise comfort, warmth and views while retaining environmental principles and reflecting the culture of surrounding rural Rwanda.”
