Nyungwe Forest Lodge
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 June 2017

Nyungwe Forest Lodge was a perfect spot for a 3 night stop that allowed us to visit the golden and colobus monkeys and chimpanzees. The room was very spacious, modern and opening onto the forest. The meals were also of a high standard and the restaurant ambiance was very calming and connected to the forest. I would highly recommend this lodge for anyone needing a stopover for their Primates tour. Very impressive property.

Accommodation is in beautiful chalets facing into the rain forest alive with birds and monkeys. Surrounded by a large tea plantation. The main building of the hotel overlooks the beautifully green tea plantation. It is modern, clean and a warm ambiance. Each evening log fires are a welcoming invitation to relax in the comfort of the lounge, large open deck and await a great meal. All staff members are over eager to please their guests. A memorable and peaceful experience with wild life in abundance not very far away. Beautiful walking trails weave through the forest.

Room Tip: All rooms have views into the rain forest.

In the middle of a tea plantation lies this little oasis. Good starting point for chimp- and golden monkey trekking. The rooms were big and well equipped and the food was really great. We also tried massage at the SPA and it was exceeding expectations (and we are rather picky when it comes to massage..) and our muscles really needed it after the 7 hours rather tough trekking! The fact that they also took care of our extremly dirty shoes and transferred them into almost new ones just when we had started to think about leaving them because of the state they were in was also very positive. Hope the new owners will keep the nice atmosphere when they open again.

Stayed there for 3 nights and among the 8 hotels or so that we stayed in Rwanda and Uganda (all top rated) this was by far the best. Food, tea and service were exceptional, the rooms are awesome. The tea ceremony is a must see!.

Wonderful location, although the actual mountain view is not that spectacular. We were not able to afford to stay here, but we did have a drink and dinner. Crazy expensive for house wine and the pour was 'small', $8. You can get the same wine in Kigali for about $4 a full glass. The set menu was $30 a person. the food was sparse, average and disappointing.
i would stay somewhere else, eat somewhere else and just go and have a walk around and a sit by the very lovely infinity pool.
no problem with the staff, they were very friendly and accomodating
