If you love the idea of taking a Gorilla Trekking Safari in Rwanda’s Virunga National Park, but cannot bear the thought of leaving behind the comfort of your favourite One&Only Beach Resort, you will be pleased to know that the world’s most luxurious resort brand is moving into Rwanda, and it’s bringing along two exquisite nature resorts where you can enjoy the award-winning hospitality and once-in-a-lifetime experiences you have become accustomed to.
As part of the brands global expansion, which will include One&Only Urban Resorts and One&Only Private Homes, the One&Only Nature Resorts Collection will provide discerning global travellers with direct access to some of nature’s best-kept secrets, and do so in such a way that supports local communities and has a minimal impact on the destination.

While One&Only is primarily recognised for its ultra-luxurious beachside resorts in the Maldives, Mauritius, Los Cabos and the Great Barrier Reef, the recent success of its Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley Resort in Australia, has allowed the brand to continue to evolve and expand its portfolio in the most beautiful locations on earth.
New One&Only Resorts in Rwanda
In 2017, One&Only Nature Resorts is set to launch two magnificent properties in Rwanda, One&Only Nyungwe House and One&Only Gorilla’s Nest. Nyungwe House is set on a working tea plantation on the edge of Nyungwe National Park, which is home to more than 13 primate species and 75 different mammals.
As you would expect from a One&Only property, this luxurious lodge combines contemporary design features with traditional Africa touches, to create a warm, inviting and opulent residence where one can relax and unwind after a long day chasing chimpanzees, visiting waterfalls, and trekking the pristine forest.
The One&Only Gorilla’s Nest Nature Resort holds prime position at the foothills of Virunga National Park, where one can view some of the world’s last remaining Mountain Gorillas in their natural habitat. The ultimate destination for those who are looking to indulge, this bespoke Africa-inspired resort combines state-of-the-art technology with traditional African elements to create the perfect luxury getaway.
