"Nyungwe Forest - The most important site for biodiversity conservation in Rwanda"

The ancient Nyungwe Forest is the largest mountain rainforest on the entire African continent, home to over 13 different species of primate and 20% of all the apes in Africa.

The lush and diverse habitat is famously home to a large population of chimpanzees and endangered monkeys; including the owl faced monkey and the golden monkey, of which sightings are reported, but unverified. The forest was cited by Birdlife International as “the most important site for biodiversity conservation in Rwanda” for its 275 recorded bird species of which 27 are endemic. Home to a myriad of stunning orchids, butterflies, moths and other fascinating creatures and insects, the Government of Rwanda declared Nyungwe a national park in 2005, affording it the highest level of protection in the country.

The resort itself, on the edge of the park, 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.


From thrilling outdoor pursuits in the National Park, to unique cultural insights and wellness experiences, One&Only Nyungwe House curates the most inspiring things to do in Rwanda.
