One&Only Gorilla's Nest

Volcanoes National Park, Rwanda

Cushioned in the foothills of the breathtaking Virunga volcano range along the north-western frontier of beautiful Rwanda, One&Only Gorilla’s Nest is the closest resort to Volcanoes National Park. You’ll be captivated as exotic birds and one of the planet’s greatest array of primate species flourish before your eyes and welcome you into their world. Then retreat to your own world, a spectacular modern haven, where every creature comfort is yours to behold.

One&Only Gorilla's Nest has 14 luxury rooms and 7 suites, all encircled by trees for ultimate privacy. Traditional Imigongo art and craftmanship fill each space with warmth and rich history, as expansive glass opens onto breathtaking views of Pyrethrum farmland, lush shambas and Eucalpytus forest. The resort also comes equipped with a pool, restaurant, bar and fitness center.

The main attraction of Gorilla's Nest is its proximity to the Virungas and the Parc National des Volcans where clients trek on foot to see the magnificent Mountain Gorilla - perhaps one of the most dramatic, thrilling and poignant wildlife experiences possible. There are, however, a myriad of other excursions on offer. These include treks to see the fascinating Golden Monkeys, which are found in the bamboo forests on the slopes of the Virunga Mountains. They provide an entertaining viewing as they leap from tree to tree and frolic in the open clearings of the forest.
