Sustainability in Action at Wilderness Safaris Bisate Lodge

People and Planet

Wilderness Safaris Bisate Lodge was created as a stunning ecolodge and a center of excellence for great ape research, to support a sustainable conservation-based economy focused on the protection of the majestc mountain gorillas that roam the region's  forested slopes. The lodge's sustainability efforts include conservation education, wildlife research, and reforestation using native bamboo, Hagenia, and Dombeya trees.  

The local community also plays an important role at Bisate, supplying the lodge with garden-fresh fruits and vegetables from a community co-operative. In addition to training and employing nearby villagers, Bisate also showcases the work of local artisans to reflect the area's culture, traditions, and history.
