A modern and luxurious lodge which, despite its size, manages to keep its ‘lodge feel’.
With a tea plantation on the one side and the Nyungwe Canopy Rainforest on the other, access is via a drive from Kigali which will take about 7 hours, or the hour drive from the airport close by. There is a heli-pad here also.
