One & Only Nyungwe House

Discover One & Only Nyungwe House

On the edge of the iconic Nyungwe National Park, amongst rich tea plantations, lies One&Only Nyungwe House, a one-of-a-kind rainforest sanctuary that provides an excellent base from which to explore all that this National Park has to offer. A variety of truly memorable experiences await you here, including expertly guided jungle treks with rare chimpanzee populations and troops of colobus monkeys, as well as sensational bird-watching opportunities.

One&Only Nyungwe House offers 22 luxury rooms and suites situated in 6 stunning wooden villas. Each room is designed to frame nature, with exceptional views of the Nyungwe Forest. There are open fireplaces in each room or suite, and private decks which offer a secluded haven to watch wildlife. The interior design of the rooms includes locally-made textiles and artwork, inspired by the talent and beauty of Rwanda. During your stay you can expect to soak up many unforgettable moments, from private dining on your elevated deck and swimming in the idyllic infinity pool, to al fresco couples' treatments at the spa and evening gatherings around the fire pit.
