One&Only is the latest luxury operator with plans to enter Rwanda, with the launch of its new brand, One&Only Nature Resorts. Two resorts will be introduced – One&Only Nyungwe House and One&Only Gorilla’s Nest.

One&Only Nyungwe House is in Gisakura, a working tea plantation on the edge of the Nyungwe National Park. The resort will comprise 22 rooms and suites in six wooden villas. All the villas have views of the forest and each room and suite have an open fireplace and private decks.

Activities include exploring Nyungwe National Park to view chimpanzees, black and white colobus monkeys, grey-cheeked mangabeys, the Kamiranzovu Swamps and waterfalls as well as bird watching. Cultural walks are also available.

Guests will be met at Kigali Airport and transferred to the resort. One&Only Nyungwe House will open later this year.

One&Only Gorilla’s Nest, near the village of Kingi, will be positioned on the foothills of the Virunga Volcano range.

Guests will be able to take part in mountain gorilla tracking, discover golden monkeys, as well as visit Dian Fossey’s Karisoke Camp.  The resort will also offer a spa and fitness centre.

Guests will have an opportunity to ‘give back’ with hands-on, interactive, immersive experiences with the local community at both lodges. “Rwanda is such an incredible destination with truly once-in-a-lifetime experiences. We look forward to immersing our guests in the country and culture and providing that ultimate connection with nature in the ultimate locations,” said Philippe Zuber, President and Chief Operating Officer at One&Only Resorts.

Wilderness Safaris, with the opening of Bisate Lodge, and Singita is among the other operators who will soon also be operating in Rwanda.
