THE BISHOPS HOUSE – MUSANZE – VOLCANOES NATIONAL PARK

The Bishop’s House is located in the Northern Province of Rwanda in a town called Musanze – the gateway to the Volcanoes National Park which is home to the mountain gorilla and the golden monkey. The House is a 25 minute drive away from the park headquarters and its location in the quiet suburbs of Musanze makes the house perfect to explore the Volcanoes National Park, Musanze Caves and the many attractions nearby and in the town.

The Bishops House is styled on colonial style architecture and furnishings and has nine luxuriously decorated rooms. The House is a haven of tranquility surrounded by flora and fauna and the rooms are furnished with large, antique hand crafted four-poster beds and stunning soft furnishings.

The house aims to offer luxurious accommodation in a town setting – the drive to the National Park Headquarters is longer than most lodges and hotels in the area but the bonus is a more comfortable price and having Musanze town right on your doorstep.
