Exuding Rwanda’s beauty and heritage, this property was constructed with its natural surroundings in mind, angled effectively to maximise mesmerising forest views from the main building. Interior dark floors, bamboo features, and African artwork combine to fashion a tasteful and private atmosphere. Discover rooms and suites skimming the treetops in their remarkable wooden clusters. Their spacious living rooms ooze delightful local character through sustainably-sourced natural materials and timber, intertwined with traditional artwork and African craftsmanship. Step across authentic bamboo flooring, past a four-poster bed to a private balcony boasting superb views into the verdant forest. Keep your eyes peeled for rare birds and mischievous monkeys darting above you. After busy days hiking, retreat to the wonderfully deep bathtub and Africology ointments to reflect on your Rwandan adventures.
