Why Nyungwe Forest National Park?
As Parc National Des Volcans is home to the mountain gorilla, so is Nyungwe Forest National Park home to the chimpanzee. Lively troops call this equatorial rainforest home, and there’s no better way to immerse yourself than with a guided chimpanzee tracking experience. Watch the playful chimps swing through the dense canopy of trees and scurry along the forest floor – and be on the lookout for the so-called ‘super troop’ of hundreds of Angolan colobus monkeys.

Nyungwe Forest National Park is a birdwatcher’s paradise with hundreds of species on offer, including the Great Blue Turaco – a standout in blue with its vibrant yellow beak. This superb park is also a great place to learn more about Rwandan culture. Visit the Kitabi cultural centre and learn how tourism benefits the local communities that help protect against wildlife poaching in the park.
