One&Only Gorilla's Nest, Rwanda
The volcanic range which spans Rwanda, Uganda and the Democratic Republic of the Congo is home to the critically-endangered mountain gorilla. The largest living primate, gorillas are spread across much of the equatorial African rainforest. Rwanda, far more ambitiously than the other two countries, has turned the gorilla sightings into a luxury commodity, complete with extremely high-end lodges.Tracking gorillas in Rwanda is safe and relatively accessible and is a wildly extravagant experience.
The most luxurious hotel in Rwanda and a brilliant place to start your gorilla-watching adventure is undoubtedly One&Only Gorilla’s Nest. Surrounded by the lush eucalyptus forests, the hotel offers sumptuous accommodation and utmost comfort in the heart of the Rwandan jungle.
The rooms, villas and suites, with their typical African motives, offer brilliant views of the forests and volcanic ranges and most of the food in the restaurants is organic and comes from the nearby gardens.
Apart from gorilla tracking there are other exciting activities, such as volcano climbing, watching other primates and bird species, as well as encountering local people and learning of their culture and traditions.
