One&Only Nyungwe House

Welcome to One&Only Nyungwe House. Imagine a place immersed in natural beauty. Remote; one-of-a-kind, where the world's best-kept secrets become yours to behold. Once in a lifetime, moments are curated specially for you, inspired by the land, the wildlife, the people, and where every creature's comfort is at your fingertips. This is a journey few will ever take.

One&Only Nyungwe House is set on the edge of the Nyungwe Forest in Rwanda's mountainous southwest. Part of a working tea plantation, her roots are well-established. Yet, simultaneously, her recent transformation provides distinctly modern energy with incredible design and every comfort you could ever need or desire. Believe the adventure begins on the journey itself. That's why the transfers are so much more than transfers.

The charismatic hosts welcome you personally at Kigali International Airport and take you on a breathtaking journey in luxury SUV or a scenic helicopter ride equipped with every creature's comfort. Stopping at remarkable points of interest along the way, with refreshments and a beautifully prepared picnic, the surprises begin before you've even touched down at the resort.

From stunning sunrise breakfasts that prepare you for a day of discovery to leisurely all-day à la carte brunches served in bed or out amongst the wilderness, nutritious and indulgent options are always on the menu. Lunches are often served 'on the go,' but the picnics are genuinely something to behold.

With beautifully set tables and delicious creations, they're just another reason to say 'wow.' From tempting nibbles around the fire pit to sociable feasts amid the flora and private dinners on the elevated deck. You'll never have the same experience twice, here or anywhere else on the planet.
