Hero Image

The architectural finesse of Gorilla’s Nest is evident throughout. Its common areas are crafted with an emphasis on openness, allowing uninterrupted views of the wild beyond. But it isn’t just the aesthetics that captivate; the lodge offers a myriad of activities designed to engage the senses. Whether it’s curated nature walks led by expert guides or interactive sessions with local communities, guests are consistently immersed in an authentic Rwandan experience. Evenings at the lodge often culminate with insightful stories about the park’s unique species shared around the bonfire.

Yet, the indulgent character of Gorilla’s Nest may not appeal to everyone. For those in search of an unfiltered, rugged wilderness experience, the opulence of this establishment might feel too lavish. Still, for those seeking a fusion of luxury and nature, Gorilla’s Nest stands as a prime choice.
