Nyungwe Forest National Park
In South West Rwanda, just south of Lake Kivu on the Burundi border, One&Only Nyungwe House is set amongst the rich tea-plantations on the edge of the iconic Nyungwe National Park. The Park itself covers approximately 1020 km² of rain forest, bamboo, grassland, swamps and bogs, and is one of the last mountain rainforest habitats on the planet.
Located some 230 kilometres from the Kigali International Airport, One&Only Nyungwe House can be reached by road, by domestic flight, or helicopter direct to their helipad.
The 5 hour journey from Kigali Airport (the last 1.5 hours is through the National Park) will take you south through scenic countryside towards Butare, a university town, home to the Ethnographic Museum of Rwanda. Turning west, you will soon climb into the mountains of the Nyungwe National Park and down into Gisakura and One&Only Nyungwe House. The journey offers a fascinating insight into the rural towns and scenic landscapes of central Rwanda, including a beautiful arrival into the mountains of Nyungwe National Park. The 30 minute helicopter charter will reveal incredible views of the Rwandan countryside, Lake Kivu and the Nyungwe National Park.
The resort itself was originally developed in conjunction with the Rwandan Government in 2010. In 2017, it came under the management of One&Only, and after an extensive renovation and upgrade of facilities, it has become the unrivalled rainforest oasis you see today.
Nestled amongst the flora of Nyungwe's mountainous landscape, Nyungwe Rooms are an ideal haven for couples. Warm interiors are brought to life by an ambient, crackling fireplace, and touches of vivid art, inspired by Rwandan tradition. A spacious en-suite bathroom features a wilderness-view shower, and indulgent stand-alone bath. Outdoors, your private deck is an awe-inspiring place to soak up the sights and sounds of the forest. The 2 Bedroom Suite offers a spacious haven for up to 4 people.
Enjoy nutritious breakfasts, leisurely lunches and homely evening meals in an elegant Rwandan-inspired dining room, with idyllic plantation views. And as night approaches, indulge in an exquisite al fresco cocktail or drink of your choice, with awe-inspiring vistas all around, in the Tea Lounge Bar.
