Nyungwe Top View Hill Hotel is found in Rwanda, and its location atop a hill provides beautiful and expansive views across beautiful tea plantations down below on one side and forests of Nyungwe Forest on the other. The hotel is situated conveniently close to the Nyungwe Forest National Park entrance which is one of Africa’s main primate safari destinations, with especially large populations of chimpanzees and Colobus monkeys. The hotel’s main area provides spectacular views of the surrounding landscape, with clear days even affording views of Lake Kivu and the region's famous volcanoes. The rooms at the hotel each have en-suite bathroom facilities, with fireplaces for colder weather. The lodge’s facilities and services include a restaurant and a very quirky, unusual bar. The bar is made almost completely out of bottle tops, giving it a creatively bright atmosphere.
Exctiting activities are offered at Nyungwe Forest National Park, where guests can embark on the thrilling experience of trekking the chimpanzees and Colobus monkeys in their natural habitat. There are also birding walks available, and, for the more adventurous, a high canopy walk.
