Stay at One & Only Nyungwe Forest Lodge

Nyungwe Forest National Park in south-western Rwanda is south of Lake Kivu on the border with Burundi. Established in 2004 the park covers an area of approximately 970 km² of rainforest, bamboo, grassland, swamps and bogs. Nyungwe is one of the oldest forests in Africa and is one of the last few mountain rainforest habitats.

Designed to fit harmoniously within its beautiful natural surroundings, Nyungwe offers guests exceptional 5-star comfort and ensures an experience rich in local culture, fluently fused with quality service and African courtesy. The lodge is situated in the Gisakura working tea plantation, on the

edge of the Nyungwe National Park, East Africa’s largest protected high altitude rainforest and the largest tract of mountain rain forest on the African continent.

Nyungwe Forest Lodge consists of 22 luxury rooms which are situated in 6 wooden villas of four rooms each. There are also two presidential suites in separate villas with one of these having a Jacuzzi. This is a luxury lodge and as such the rooms are modern fit-outs and well decorated with traditional touches. Each room is equipped with private decks which offer views overlooking the vast forest terrain.

We were so impressed with the standards here, particularly the level of service. The gorillas, of course blew us away and the whole trip was a truly spectacular wildlife experience.
