Nyungwe Top view hotel might not be a five star hotel but it offers pretty good accommodation close to the park. Opened in 2011, the unassuming Nyungwe Top View Hill Hotelis located just five minutes’ drive off a main road, on top of a steep hill with views across numerous tea plantations; it has easily the most beautiful views in the Nyungwe Forest area. With its proximity to the headquarters of Nyungwe Forest National Park, it is a good base for trekking to see the chimpanzees and exploring the forest.
Nyungwe top view hotel offers activities mainly centered around the park. So look forward to tracking chimpanzees, seeing he Ruwenzori Colobus monkey, birdwatching, forest walk, and going on the Nyungwe canopy walk.
The hotel provides a driver to take you around the park and the various places you might want to visit.

Water supply notes: All water comes from the forest itself. Whilst this is fine for brushing your teeth, bottled water is provided in all rooms.
