Lodge living

Make your selection from an array of beautifully proportioned rooms, ready for you to rest after completing a long day’s trekking. The incredibly well-constructed lodge is built in traditional style with thatched Rwandese roofing and all the impeccable accommodation at this exotic resort will entertain guests with unparalleled views of the lush blue-green eucalyptus forest and the charming villages and shambas beyond.

Rwandese cuisine

Tantalising treats await your taste buds at this wondrous resort. The magnificent restaurant at Gorilla’s Nest offers diners tranquil vistas over the resort’s lawns and gardens while serving home-grown cuisine native to Rwanda.

Rare and wonderful activities

Gorilla’s Nest offers a unique and exceptional experience for all who visit. Hike out on guided tours to see the stunning gorilla population among other amazing species that dwell in the leafy bowers of the rainforest.

In the shadow of the astounding Virunga Volcanoes, it’s hard to picture a more beautiful setting for a round or two.
