On the road with #OneTouchLive :: Nyungwe Forest Lodge, Rwanda

Nyungwe Forest Lodge_Mutua Matheka_blog-17

Our East African Road trip last year got us spending 2 nights in Nyungwe Forest Lodge in Rwanda. A beautiful haven in the Nyungwe rain forest (which is one of the largest protected rain forests in Africa). Our trip was rough and this stop was no doubt a very welcome rest stop. Nyungwe rain forest is a marvel to look at and a place you wouldn’t want to get lost in. The hotel itself is built on a tea farm. They cleared enough for the hotel and kept the tea farm which they allow the locals to harvest and sell the tea for their own profit. It’s their way of giving back.

In Nyungwe, they are big on tea and if you visit this hotel be sure to have nothing but tea at any time possible. They do tea tasting once in a while and have tea experts from around the world to teach visitors about the different teas of the world.

So anyway. I know you didn’t come here to read so on to the photos.

A lot of the Interior is designed using products of tea. The table on the left is made using tea twigs. The chandelier here has been made using hundreds of steel tea sieves put together. I loved that fitting.

The interior, the surrounding, the tiny bit of detail in this place was done to perfection. And you have brought that out in these shots. Nice work Muts.

Thanks man. For me, the beauty in architectural photography is bringing to life, in photos, details that architects worked hard on designing. So success in that is welcome. Thank you.

Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!
