Bisate Lodge is located in the natural amphitheatre of an eroded volcanic cone – the word bisate means ‘pieces’ in Kinyarwanda, describing how the cone was once whole but worn away by natural erosion. The lodge is built on a hill in front of the volcanoes Bisoke, Karisimbi and Mikeno rearing up through the Afro-alpine forests of nearby Volcanoes National Park. © Andrea Frazzetta / INSTITUTE

Rwanda is honored to be among the latest top tourist destinations to receive the world’s first-ever global safety and hygiene stamp, launched recently by the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC).

The safety stamp means that Rwanda has adopted the global standardized health and hygiene protocols that were devised following the experience of WTTC members dealing with COVID19. They are also based on guidelines from the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
