Experience the sensational flora and fauna of Rwanda’s Nyungwe Forest in this short safari tour.
Nyungwe is a high-altitude rainforest on the Albertine Rift in the South-East of the country. The 950 square kilometres of diverse terrain remains untouched and it is the largest montane forest area in East or Central Africa. Since much of Africa’s mountain rainforest has long disappeared, this area is of great importance for rare wildlife and for the study of natural science.
Visitors enjoy stunning vistas, treks through the varied vegetation and the opportunity to see many unusual flowering plants (including over 100 varieties of orchid), 200 species of trees and shrubs, 13 species of primates (including chimpanzees and colobus monkeys) and over 300 species of bird, some of which are highly endangered and are only found in this area.
