This September, at the edge of Rwanda’s Volcanoes National Park, something new is coming. Nestled high in the East African rainforest, optimal habitat for engaging and personal interactions with mountain gorillas, Wilderness Bisate Reserve is Wilderness’ latest offering.

Here luxury and privacy combine, and in addition to moving encounters with these gentle giants, there are comically entertaining golden monkeys, and over 200 magnificent bird species to see, in a dramatic landscape set against the backdrop of six striking volcanoes. A true haven of rainforest endemism.

Wilderness Bisate Reserve is crafted with meticulous detail. A spacious main area and just four expansive villas are perched on the rim of a weathered volcano; featuring private hot tubs, Bisate Reserve is ideally poised to capture the majestic views. Moreover, the lodge’s architecture embodies the traditions of Rwandan royalty and heritage, while in-room dining options and personalised service offer the ultimate in intimacy and exclusivity. 

Continuing a Wilderness legacy

Artfully blending sophistication and sustainability, Wilderness Bisate Reserve represents an extension of our conservation efforts in Rwanda. We recently recorded a monumental achievement in the country – planting our 100,000th indigenous tree through our reforestation project to transform a former agricultural site into a thriving forest – and hence the apt naming of our ‘reserve’. Now guests can weave themselves into this profound conservation tale, and actively participate in Bisate’s conservation success story, to become integral contributors to safeguarding Rwanda’s wilderness. Every single guest becomes a partner in biodiversity protection and local community upliftment, directly contributing to the preservation of the iconic endangered mountain gorillas.
