Head to the verdant landscapes of Rwanda and the edges of Nyungwe Forest on this safari vacation. Staying at the luxurious One&Only Nyungwe House, you’ll enjoy premium accommodations and world-class service as you learn about Rwandan history and trek through the jungle in search of chimpanzees.


This 4-day safari takes you to Rwanda’s most luxurious lodge, located in the gorgeous Nyungwe Forest.

Your Rwanda safari takes you from the capital city of Kigali to the verdant countryside and the jungles of Nyungwe Forest. On the edge of Nyungwe Forest, you’ll find One&Only Nyungwe House, a 5-star safari lodge that’s widely considered the best in the country. At One&Only Nyungwe House, you’ll stay in one of 22 luxury rooms with incredible views of the surrounding forest and the active tea plantation that sits next door. Every suite has an open fireplace just outside its doors and private viewing decks where you can watch animals pass through the nearby bush. The lodge interiors evoke traditional Rwandan designs while the staff aim to provide exceptional service and help Globetrotters have their most fulfilling experience, whether that means arranging for private picnics, open-air spa treatments, or game safaris.

While at One&Only Nyungwe House, you’ll take advantage of the surrounding countryside and get to know Rwanda better. Start with some museum visits, heading first to Kings Palace Museum to see a recreation of a 19th-century palace and learn about Rwandan tradition before visiting Butare Museum to engage with the country’s history. After learning about Rwandan culture and history, you’ll head on a game excursion into Nyungwe Forest National Park to search for chimpanzees, the country’s most famous simian inhabitants. As you trek through the rainforest, you’ll come across groups of chimpanzees engaging in their fascinating social rituals and swinging through the jungle canopies.

This Rwanda safari is a great way to combine luxurious relaxation with the wonders of the wild.
