Our conservation philosophy
A heartfelt mission for Rwanda and beyond
Supporting our communities
One&Only Nyungwe House both supports and initiates a number of conservation efforts in our resort’s unique jungle location, safeguarding it for future generations. During your stay, you can contribute to our conservation efforts, both on and off resort. We also offer numerous opportunities whereby you can help our communities to flourish, supporting local artisans and producers. Visit the nearby Banda Village and invest in charming handmade objects; not only will you be purchasing a unique, meaningful memento, you’ll also be funding charitable initiatives.
Together, we achieve
Translating to ‘coming together in common purpose to achieve an outcome’, Umuganda is a traditional Rwandan practise undertaken on the last Saturday of each month. We invite you to join us on these initiatives which range from planting new trees, to helping to build schools. A sign of unity, Umuganda has inspired community-driven development in the regions connected to Nyungwe National Park
Our organic, garden-to-plate menu is designed with sustainability at its heart and from environmentally-friendly sources, with a range of ingredients grown in our very own Chef’s Garden. Discover first-hand where the inspiration for every dish begins as one of our senior chefs guides you through our kitchen’s dedicated garden with native produce that makes up some of our pantry staples. Favouring organic, seasonal ingredients from the fertile lands of Gisakura and surroundings, this is soul food at its most wholesome.
