Following the Government of Rwanda’s decision to lift its travel advisory, One&Only Gorilla’s Nest has reopened for business and is calling on GCC travellers to experience and eye-opening journey at the spectacular destination.
Situated in the foothills of the breathtaking Virunga volcano range, One&Only Gorilla’s Nest offers an exclusive front-row seat to observe endangered mountain gorillas in the wild.
Scheduled commercial flights are now operating to the country and GCC travellers can start planning their next encounter with the majestic mountain gorillas at Volcanoes National Park. The park is home to the highest number of mountain gorillas, as well as five dormant volcanoes and is categorized as a rainforest because of its montane ecosystem.
Visitors from the GCC can look forward to private sanctuaries that seamlessly blend with the location and offer an intimate collection of 21 jungle-chic havens. Each space is designed to frame nature and is surrounded by Eucalyptus trees and strategically positioned on stilts. Private decks and in-room fireplaces provide the opportunity to live amongst the endless landscape, inviting the outside in, and allowing for a truly unforgettable African experience.
Suites offer spacious living and dining areas, as well as a natural experience with outdoor bathtubs high amongst the trees, offering ultimate privacy and seclusion. Guests can enjoy private outdoor dining experiences, barbeques and picnics with meals created by executive chef, Bryan English, and his team, focusing on local and organic ingredients.
In addition to the iconic gorilla trekking, guests of the resort can also immerse themselves in both the wildlife, history and culture of Rwanda through a curated selection of unforgettable experiences, such as hiking to spot golden monkeys through the jungle canopy, birdwatching, traversing the ancient Mount Bisoke in a challenging eight hour hike or being immersed in the colourful fragrant rose garden at the resort.
