Bisate Lodge

Bisate Lodge is located in the natural amphitheater of an eroded volcanic cone – in Kinyarwanda, the word bisate means ‘pieces’ describing how the once-whole cone was worn away by natural erosion. Six luxurious suites encompass warmth, comfort and panoramic views whilst retaining the environmental principles and culture of Rwanda.

STEP INSIDE
BISATE LODGE

“I shall never forget my first encounter with gorillas. Sound preceded sight. Odor preceded sound. The air was suddenly rent by a high-pitched series of screams followed by the rhythmic chestbeats of a Great Silverback male obscured by what seemed an impenetrable wall of vegetation.”

GORILLAS IN THE MIST

“Little did I know then that by setting up two small tents in the wilderness of the Virungas I had launched the beginnings of what was to become an internationally renowned research station eventually to be utilized by students and scientists from many countries.”
—  Dian Fossey.

Born in San Francisco in 1932, Dian Fossey was a primatologist known for her substantial research on the mountain gorillas of Rwanda. During your stay at Bisate Lodge we’ll arrange a spectacular hiking excursion to the ruins of the Karisoke Research Centre and burial site of Dian Fossey, sited next to her favorite primate Digit.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
