About Nyungwe House, a Partner Hotel of One&Only
One&Only take pride in offering access to the world’s most beautiful locations, and Nyungwe House is no exception. It sits within a luscious tea plantation overlooking the forest canopy – few places come quite so close to such a harmonious natural setting. There are 13 different species of primate to look out for during your stay, including chimpanzee, and an impressive 275 bird species, from the gabar goshawk to the great blue turaco.
With more than 20 spacious and contemporary en-suite rooms, you don’t have to rough it to get out into the wild. The interiors are elegantly decorated with artwork inspired by Rwanda’s local beauty and ancient traditions. The air-conditioning, private veranda and open fireplaces will keep you in a state of relaxation while you keep your eyes open for all the forest’s wildlife.
Enjoy homecooked breakfasts and on-the-go lunches and picnics, all prepared by talented local chefs who know their ingredients well. Aperitifs and snacks are always available, and the sound of the jungle gives every meal a delightfully romantic edge. The weather here is heavenly all year round and the well-trained staff have got the balance just right when it comes to being personable, professional and responsible.
