Guerrilla Trekking Safari

What’s my eco-friendly bucketlist trip post CV19?

Then, I’d love to go to Rwanda with Wilderness Safaris and stay at Bisate. Bisate Lodge, adjacent to Volcanoes National Park, combines the bucket-list gorilla trek with a pioneering vision of reforestation and community partnership.

Bisate is located in the natural amphitheatre of an eroded volcanic cone, with dramatic views of the peaks of the Bisoke and Karisimbi volcanoes rearing up through Afro-alpine forests. Encountering one of the gorilla groups in the nearby Volcanoes National Park is a unique experience.

Six opulent en-suite Forest Villas maximise comfort and views while adhering to environmentally responsible principles and reflecting the rich culture of rural Rwanda. Bisate is within easy driving distance of the Park Headquarters, from where gorilla treks depart daily. Walks on Bisate’s property offer birding and participation in the reforestation programme.

Bisate is Rwanda’s first genuinely luxurious and eco-sensitive safari lodge, centred on Africa’s most immersive wild primate experience. The lodge can be booked for complete private use too.

On route from the Southern tip of Africa to Rwanda, a convenient stopover will be Kenya and Tanzania, just saying, the options are endless, so little time, so many destinations…..

Sustainable travel: 3 Vital Questions:

  1. Would I have contributed to local conservation?– YES
  2. Would I support local communities? – YES
  3. Would I preserve the cultural and natural heritage? – YES
