Joy for Life
Rwanda has recently opened up the world of convenient primate viewing if one were to consider the experience against other areas. The gorilla trekking here caters for many individual levels of fitness and can be tailored to your needs. Some exciting new accommodations are now available, with some still in progress, and visitors are guaranteed unspoilt wilderness, pure luxury and exceptionally high chances of seeing the protected mountain gorilla.
Rwanda hosts thousands of plant species, over 650 bird species and a plethora of reptiles and amphibians, and even with the impressive 151 mammal species including no less than 15 primates, it's the people that create the experience.
A vibrant and friendly culture with an incredible story to tell. Rwanda holds much in her peoples' history, and the value of tourism and conservation to this incredibly diverse land is positively unquantifiable.
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.
Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge is located close to the headquarters of the Volcanoes National Park from where clients trek on foot to see the magnificent Mountain Gorilla.
The lodge, situated in the foothills of the mighty Virungas, the chain of 15,000 ft volcanoes stretching through Rwanda, Uganda and the Democratic Republic of Congo, affords wonderful views of the volcanoes and the surrounding countryside. Guest facilities have been beautifully constructed and appointed and are the perfect base from which to explore this unique and fascinating corner of Africa.
