"This is an outstanding place to stay"
We were lucky to watch Blue Monkeys and Blue Turacos from our balcony, enjoyed a birdwalk one afternoon with Gadi, the resident Birding Guide, along with enjoying the spectacular pool area and the wonderful meals.
The staff were all friendly and keen to share all the place has to offer." See all these reviews: 21n in Rwanda

"This reopened lodge is top quality!"
The food is more than excellent, we especially loved the light lunches. Service is excellent and still with the typical natural and very friendly Rwandan feel, keep it that way!
Highly recommended!" See all these reviews: 7n in Rwanda; 4n in Tanzania

Good location in the forest. Beautiful grounds. Staff and lodge director were excellent and willing to accommodate any needs that we had. Very interested in assuring that our experience there was excellent. They organized lodge activities outside of regular hours that they were scheduled. Food was exceptionally well presented and prepared.
Enjoyed the family style dinner seating with very interesting other guests.
Muddy boot cleaning service in the laundry were very helpful." See all these reviews: 8n in Rwanda; 4n in Tanzania

We saw a number of primates from our chalet and around the grounds of the lodge.

"Nyungwe Forest Lodge review"
Extremely comfortable rooms with decks looking out on forest through which monkeys traveled routinely. Excellent food at all meals. Wonderful service by a staff continually committed to providing a top-class experience. In a distracting oddity, muzak plays at all hours of the day in the main lodge building.
The Park itself is very attractive and gives some idea of the flavor and beauty of Rwanda before deforestation. Excellent primate tracking and hiking in and around the Park. Tracking of the colobus monkeys occurred not more than 500 meters from the Lodge, and the monkeys were abundant and highly accessible. The canopy walk in the Park was beautiful and exhilarating (in a terrifying way)." See all these reviews: 12n in Rwanda; 7n in Mozambique; 1n in South Africa
"Would not be out of placed in Knightsbridge !"
Everything is quality. The furniture and fittings, the decor, highly trained and attentive staff. Individual lodges are lovely. The food is outstanding. A gym, swimming pool and spa is available but I never had enough time to use them ! Wonderful views of the Nyungwe Forest from the lounge and restaurant.
For the chimpanzee trek a member of the staff was up to greet me at 4 am to provide coffee and a takeaway breakfast before I left early.
A very enjoyable stay." See all these reviews: 12n in Rwanda
"A beautiful lodge in a tea plantation"
The food & service were excellent. We wish we could have stayed another couple of days.
A trip to the nearby tea factory was worthwhile. Too bad they didn't sell any tea!" See all these reviews: 15n in Rwanda; 9n in Zanzibar
