Nyungwe Forest Safari

The ultimate guide to your next Nyungwe Forest Safari

Get to Know Nyungwe Forest

The largest remaining montane rainforest in East Africa, Nyungwe is also one of the most biodiverse, supporting 13 primate species and many rare forest birds.

Gazetted in 2000, Nyungwe is Rwanda’s newest and largest national park, extending across 1,000 square kilometres of mountainous southwestern Burundi border region, where it protects the largest extant montane rainforest in East Africa. Nyungwe’s main attraction for most visitors is its population of at least 500 chimpanzees, which can be tracked at Cyamudongo, a relict montane forest patch protected as an isolated annex to the park. The other big draw, constructed in 2010, is a 200-metre-long canopy walkway that offers thrilling views of life above the forest floor.

FAQs about Nyungwe National Park

  • I would recommend that when you are certain about your dates and if you are happy with the package, quote, booking and price to make a deposit payment to secure your booking.
  • Availability is always a factor, you might find that there is nothing available at a later stage.
  • The best time to visit Nyungwe Forest National Park in southern Rwanda is during the drier months of June to August or December to January.
  • Even though June to August or December to January are categorically referred to as drier months - it still does rain in the Nyunga Forest National Park almost all year round.
