Safari Guru
One&Only Gorilla's Nest

One&Only Gorilla's Nest is situated right in the foothills of the Volcanoes National Park and hidden amongst the trees, creating the opportunity for a once in a lifetime rare and personal encounter with the majestic mountain gorilla - all free-roaming in their natural habitat.

Guests will be welcomed by an impactful view of the Main Lodge, up the volcano stone drive complete with traditional Rwandan welcome and signature One&Only Gorilla's Nest drink.

The resort has twenty one guest lodges and suites, comprising Forest King Lodge's which are perfect for two people sharing, two-bedroom Forest Lodges, and several one-bedroom suites, including two super suites. Modern by design, yet with traditional Rwandan influences, each villa overlooks the vast African terrain with private decks and an in-room fireplace.

Experience an undisturbed connection with the vast forest beyond, lounging in your luxurious king-sized bedroom, sound tracked by the soothing crackle of local wood in the fireplace. Watch the floor-to-ceiling glass disappear and let the scents and sounds of nature flow in. Follow them out to your secluded open-air viewing deck, enjoy an invigorating al fresco shower or spend precious time relaxing in your standalone bath with undisturbed private views.


The cabins and suites are luxurious by design, offering uber luxury, and each of their elegant and comfortable interiors is fitted with a minibar, a flat-screen TV and complimentary Wi-Fi. Guests may enjoy a complimentary breakfast each morning; an on-site restaurant serves only the best cuisine. There are activities available at the establishment, such as guided gorilla treks and wellness workshops.
