Among the stunning flora and fauna of the Volcanoes National Park, One&Only Gorilla's Nest is a haven. Lodges are bright and airy, with traditional touches and Imigongo art to fill the space with a sense of history. Large viewing decks bring you into the heart of your jungle surroundings, while suite upgrades will see you relaxing in an outdoor bathtub, gathering around a fire pit and swimming in a private pool. Stay connected to home with high-speed WiFi, and indulge with a comprehensive in-room minibar and fireplace on cooler nights.

Dining showcases traditional Rwandan flavours with contemporary flair at Nest, the resort's main restaurant. Fresh produce from the onsite chef's garden provides a seasonal base for a menu of delicious world cuisine, curated by One&Only's exceptional team of chefs. A specialty tea and coffee bar is also available here, while a selection of exotic cocktails, regional and world wines are served among the dark wood furnishings and warm African decor of Nest Bar.

And, a visit to Rwanda would not be complete without seeing some of its incredible wildlife. Hike through verdant bamboo forests to see a troop of majestic mountain gorillas up close, a truly unforgettable experience. Track golden monkeys as they leap between trees, or scale Bisoke volcano to reach a vast crater lake. You can even visit a network of 65 million year-old caves, populated by a colony of local bats.
