Located next to Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda, Wilderness Safaris’ Bisate Lodge has embarked on a bold mission of reforestation. Their partnership with Rwanda Development Board (RDB) and the African Wildlife Foundation has resulted in a 27.8 hectare increase for the mountain gorilla habitat as of January 2018, and their work continues. Many other species have benefited as well with returning residents including the tree hyrax, serval, side-striped jackal, Egyptian mongoose, and numerous bird and butterfly species. The project is supported by an on-site nursery producing more than 100,000 seedlings per year. Almost 30,000 trees of several indigenous species have grown to maturity and no longer require Wilderness Safaris’ care.
