"Bisate Lodge review"

4 nights Arrived 17 May 2019
"Bisate was an absolute gem of a lodge!

Upon arrival, we were first in awe of the beautiful design. Built into the side of a mountain, the lodge is incredibly unique and stunningly designed; we loved that the villas and common areas capitalized on the local aesthetic.

Our hosts, Jomi and Hadley, and the staff were incredibly accommodating and personable; we truly felt as though we were staying at our home away from home. And we must tip our hat to the chef who crafted delicious fare meal after meal and was kind enough to share recipes for some of our favorite dishes.

Simply stated, we would return to this lodge in a heartbeat and highly recommend it to others. You will not be disappointed!" See all these reviews: 4n in Rwanda; 1n in Kenya

"Beautiful designed luxury retreat"

3 nights Arrived 4 Feb 2019
"Beautifully designed lodge, individual villas are stylish, big and with great views. Located rather close to the headquarter of the park, which is a bonus. Top service, very detail oriented and always with a smile. Restaurant with great and healthy food, we loved the evening with Rwandan food.

The focus on community and conservation project is admirable, one should definitely take the community walk to the nearby village with Aline, a highlight of our trip!" See all these reviews: 7n in Rwanda; 4n in Tanzania

"Bisate Lodge"

4 nights Arrived 1 Dec 2018
"Fabulous lodge, with stunning views and exceptionally welcoming staff team.
Beatiful room & bathroom.
Excellent choice of food which was all fresh and tasty.

Interesting to learn about the conservation and local community work with the village.

Only issue would be the need to go to the Park Headquarters to then come back towards the lodge to start the treking, however understand that is out of the lodge management hands." See all these reviews: 6n in Rwanda
