About Bisate Lodge and the unique Gorilla Trekking Luxury Safari Program
Wilderness Safaris launches in Rwanda with Bisate lodge, an upcoming 12-room forest sanctuary located on a pristine 64-acre development around the famous Volcanoes National Park of Rwanda.
The first luxury lodge of its kind to enter the Gorilla Trekking offerings in Rwanda, Bisate Lodge will lead the 4C's ethos with community development and conservation at it’s core. Formed under the Tuzamurane Cooperative partnership, the project undertakes reforestation of a unique setting:
“This certainly launches a new standard for high-end ecotourism in Rwanda. What is exciting is the unique merger of an adventure program with an otherworldly base camp experience; The most impressive feature of the Volcanoes range is brought into the architectural element of Bisate Lodge with the building of a luxury lodge within the natural setting of an extinct volcanic cone. It’s an unusual and appealing concept to pair with the substantial primate conservation initiative in this area, both working together as a much needed investment to add to the appeal of Rwanda as an upcoming star attraction in East African itineraries,” stated Sophia Hyet, CEO of Guided Safaris®.
“The opportunity to use the Wilderness Safaris model of responsible ecotourism to contribute to positive conservation and community empowerment in such a unique and exciting environment is exactly why we do what we do”, said Keith Vincent, CEO of Wilderness Safaris. “More than that, we have found the Rwanda government, ecotourism industry and conservation community to be nothing but welcoming and hospitable in partnering with us to pioneer a new kind of ecotourism in this inspirational country.”
Encompassing views of the misty forests and brooding volcanic peaks, the Bisate lodge will be a perfect base from which to set out on specialized guided Gorilla Trekking safaris in Rwanda.
Community interaction celebrating the unique cultural heritage of Rwanda is another treat available to guests at Bisate Lodge with a personalized and authentic visit to nearby villages.
Set to officially open doors in the summer of 2016, this inspiring project reaches far into the heart of responsible tourism to effect important environmental support in Rwanda.
