Promising to be the most luxurious new property in close proximity to Volcanoes National Park, Bisate Lodge will accommodate just twelve guests in six forest villas. Due to open in June 2017, it will be the perfect base from which to discover the riches of the Virunga volcanic area with its misty mountain vistas and famed groups of habituated gorillas. Beyond the incredible thrill of meeting gorillas, other attractions include cultural visits to local villages, the lava tunnels of the Musanze Caves, Dian Fossey’s grave and the twin lakes of Buhondo and Burera. Birding will be a highlight, and guests will also be offered the opportunity to participate in a visionary reforestation programme.
