Rwanda

Discover Africa's oldest rainforest with One&Only

Wild Jungle Beauty

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 rainforest 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 rainforest, just south of Lake Kivu on the Burundi border. Discover a sanctuary where animals roam free, locals are few, and guests scarcer still.

One&Only Nyungwe House

Go where few have travelled before as you discover One&Only Nyungwe House, nestled within the jungle on our working tea plantation, Gisakura. Overlooking verdant hills and misty mountains, stay within reach of the lush tree canopies of Africa's oldest rainforest.
