Tucked between the lush tea plantations of southwest Rwanda, Nyungwe National park is a vast mountain rain forest of striking biodiversity. A popular tourist favourite, it’s home to over 1000 species of flora and fauna, including many types of chimpanzees, as well as owl-faced and colobus monkeys. Crossing a suspension bridge called The Canopy Walkway gives visitors unrivalled views over the valley and surrounding forests, and a trail running to the Kamiranzovu Marsh offers spectacular birdlife, waterfall and orchid sightings.
In this oasis of beauty and diverse life is Nyungwe House, located within the working tea plantation of Gisakura International Airport. Guests lucky enough to spend some time at the lodge are granted an exciting window into Africa’s fascinating wildlife and culture, exploring the lush green expanse and primate haven in authentic luxury.
