This luxury lodge is situated on the edge of the ancient Nyungwe Forest in Rwanda, the largest mountain rainforest in Africa. Built within a working tea plantation, One&Only Nyungwe House offers a fascinating look at unique African wildlife and culture – from up-close encounters with rare primates and exotic birds, to heart-warming interactions with local people and tailor-made experiences like gastronomic picnics in the wild.
