One&Only Gorilla’s Nest ~  Rwanda

One&Only Gorillas nest One&Only Gorillas Nest

As we arrived at One&Only Gorilla’s Nest, we were greeted by the sound of music, a welcome performance of African Drums being played, a wonderfully refreshing drink and warm towel.  We reached this little haven just in time for lunch and then we were shown to our room, and oh boy what a room it was. One&Only Gorilla’s Nest itself is very clever in its design, giving you the feeling of being a world away from normal life but in actual fact it is situated in close proximity to the local village.   Set within its own ample acreage, from the moment you arrive you are hit by the natural energy, the fragrant fauna and flora, surrounded by beautiful tall eucalyptus trees and roses which grow all year round. The perfect ecosystem that is constantly growing, your backdrop, your hideaway to everything on your plate – nature, peace and ethics run deep through the veins of One&Only Gorilla’s Nest.
