Bisate Reserve HERO

Bisate Reserve

Bisate Reserve

Due to open in September 2024, Bisate Reserve is the sister property of the iconic Bisate Lodge. Incredibly exclusive, the new Bisate property elevates the level of luxury even further. Regarded as the most intimate and exclusive lodge in Volcanoes National Park area, the expansive private villas embody the traditions of Rwandan royalty and heritage.

Bisate Reserve is equal parts a sanctuary for those embarking on a gorilla trekking adventure, and a regal indulgence for even the most discerning traveller. Ultra-exclusive, there are only four sublime ensuite villas designed with thatch, basket-weave and timber elements. Each villa boasts expansive living areas, viewing decks and private hot tubs. For families, two-villas can be linked to create a family room.

Bisate Reserve is on a mission to be a model of conservation tourism, and have begun a pioneering reforestation and rehabilitation project. When you stay at Bisate Reserve, you will be contributing to biodiversity protection, local community uplift, and having a positive impact on the mountain gorilla.
