One & Only Nyungwe House: Rwanda Resorts & Lodge

Experience Africa on a deeply personal level, from the wild depths of Nyungwe Forest when you stay at One & Only Nyungwe House. Here, in the heart of Rwanda, lies the oldest rain forest on earth, home to rare primates and reptiles, orchids, butterflies and exotic birds. The cherished Nyungwe Forest National Park is a 102,000-hectare expanse of mountain rain forest, just south of Lake Kivu on the Burundi border. Discover a sanctuary where animals roam free, locals are few, and guests scarcer still.

The accommodation offers a one-of-a-kind escape, bordering one of Africa’s oldest rain forest. Situated in five striking wooden villa clusters, our treetop-skimming, luxury suites and rooms are secluded in wonderfully untamed surroundings, accommodating all adventure seekers and paying homage to Rwanda’s beauty and heritage. Enjoy exceptional dining and selected beverages included in your stay, plus two signature resort experiences daily.
