One&Only Nyungwe House

Alongside ancient rainforest, nestled within the lush expanse of a working tea plantation, One&Only Nyungwe House is a rare haven of creature comforts offering an exclusive window to the wonders of Rwanda. Fascinating wildlife, roaming free. Captivating communities, carving their path through time. Dramatic mountain landscapes, creating endless vistas. And in the midst of it all, world-class dining, blissful wellness, and transformational moments, curated for you. In Southwest Rwanda, just south of Lake Kivu on the Burundi border, One&Only Nyungwe House is set amongst the rich tea-plantations of Gisakura, on the edge of the iconic Nyungwe National Park. The park itself covers approximately 394 square-miles of rainforest, bamboo, grassland, swamps and bogs, and is one of the last mountain rainforest habitats on the planet. A farm-to-table philosophy underpins every menu, showcasing organic, seasonal produce from fertile local lands.
