One & Only Gorilla’s Nest

Volcanoes National Park, Rwanda

You will feel fully-immersed in the untamed landscape of Rwanda at One and Only’s Gorilla Nest. Enveloped within a pristine rainforest, this exceptional hideaway is framed by towering eucalyptus trees and boasts beautiful volcanic vistas. 

We love the selection of accommodation options at Gorilla’s Nest – catering for romantic, family, and small group experiences. From the King and Forest Lodges to the selection of enchanting suites, each has been tastefully decorated and luxuriously furnished. When you are not unwinding in your sanctuary, dine on seasonal menus that have been lovingly created with ingredients from the Chef’s garden or indulge in a wellness treatment inspired by the traditional wisdom of Africa.

FAMILY FRIENDLY: Absolutely! Gorilla Nest offers a two-bedroom family suite, childminding services and an array of activities to keep young ones entertained. Please note that the minimum age for children to participate on a gorilla trek is 15 and 12 for the golden monkey trek.

Being surrounded by a rain forest in Rwanda really makes you feel connected with your surroundings. Not only do we love the lodge’s location but we also love its immersive wellness experience, which enables you to enhance your healthy lifestyle or delve into a new world of spiritual and physical development.

 Insider Tip: Rwanda is a fantastic destination for hikers. We highly recommend the hike up Mt. Bisoke – yes, one of Rwanda’s dramatic volcano peaks. Come prepared though, it is a challenging eight hour trek but it rewards with an exceptional array of habitats and views.
