Nyungwe Forest Lodge
The edges of the Nyungwe rain forest open out into a scenic tea plantation, and this high end lodge sits discreetly in this setting. The rooms have a bright and modern feel, and there’s a welcoming lounge area. Treks into the forest are recommended, especially given the 13 species of primate that live there.
This high-altitude forest has some of the greatest wildlife diversity on the continent. It stretches over 378 square miles, and is one of the largest rainforest areas left in Africa. See how many of the 14 species of primate you can spot, or wonder at the 1,100 species of flora.
