Nyungwe Forest National Park & Ruhengeri / The Call of the Wild

Through misty forests and over dramatic peaks, a venture deep into Rwanda’s lush heart reveals more than just untamed wilderness.

Within a tranquil tea plantation at the edge of a million-year-old rainforest, the 22 exclusive suites that comprise One&Only Nyungwe House epitomise contemporary African flair and grant you easy access to a population of primates.

After a few nights immersed in Rwanda’s nature, head to nearby Kinigi and you’ll find the aptly named One&Only Gorilla’s Nest. With just 21 rooms and suites tucked away in the foothills of Virunga volcano range, this boutique enclave makes for an ideal base to visit the regions endangered mountain gorillas.

Nyungwe Forest National Park

Nyungwe Forest National Park

After breakfast, transfer to One&Only Nyungwe House. Bordering Rwanda’s Nyungwe Forest National Park, the park is nestled within a working tea plantation in one of the last mountain rainforest habitats on Earth. Said to have stayed green even through the Ice Age, the forest is rich in biodiversity; home to 13 species of primate who reside alongside 280 species of bird. Should you choose to drive, you will take a detour to The National Museum which remained surprisingly untouched throughout the civil war of 1994. Once settled, you will have the opportunity to visit humanity’s closest relative, the chimpanzee, in their natural habitat before a stroll under the canopy to spot more of the forest's inhabitants.
