One&Only Gorilla’s Nest
Volcanoes National Park, Rwanda
Amid the fragrant leaves of the eucalyptus forest of Volcanoes National Park nestles the One&Only Gorilla’s Nest. Peering out from the canopy, this collection of sumptuous treehouse-style stays is close to where the critically endangered mountain gorillas have their jungle habitat.
Why We Love It
Beyond the gorillas—and we realize it’s hard to look past them (especially the silverback)—the resort also offers an excellent selection of cultural experiences from joining a traditional drum circle to immersing yourself in village life.
The Silverback Suite is incredible—private pool, multi-level spaces, lounge, and personalized catering on your barbeque dining terrace.
In Rwanda’s northeast, at the edge of the biodiverse drama of Volcanoes National Park, One&Only Gorilla’s Nest is a secluded jungle sanctuary.
Within the rich timber frames of these boxy villas are contemporary African-chic interiors with the color dialed down to not take away from the surrounding nature. Traditional Imgongo art dresses the walls with patterns and muted tones.
Designed to keep you in touch with the park beyond, the exterior private terraces and the interior bathtubs have impressive views of the volcanoes. Listen to the symphonic birdlife while washing your hair in the alfresco shower.
