The Bishop's House is conveniently located in Ruhengeri, a 30-minute drive from the Volcanoes National Park and the starting point of Rwanda's famed gorilla treks. The hotel emanates the glamorous style of a colonial mansion, mixed with a warm touch of Rwandan chic. Each of the nine rooms envelops its guests with a high level of comfort, and the terrace, bar, restaurant, library and beautiful garden further enrich this little haven. Guests are within easy reach of both the cultural activities and shops available in the town of Ruhengeri, as well as the wealth of outdoor adventures within the national park. Visitors can be introduced to the world of Rwanda's gorillas at the Karisoke Research Centre, and then trek to experience these magnificent creatures for themselves.
