rwanda nyungwe forest lodgeBroadening about 1,000 square kilometers over the gigantic hills of south-east Rwanda, Nyungwe National Park is recognized as the biggest country of Montane Forest in Central Africa. It is also one of the oldest, dating back to the end of Ice Age. A magnificently opulence hub of floral diversity, the woodland possess more than 200 diverse kinds of trees, and a plethora of flowering plants encompassing the gigantic lobelia and a range of colorful orchids.

Nyungwe Forest is most popular because of its primates: a total of 13 species, encompassing humankind’s closest breathing relative – the chimpanzees, and also the dashing L’Hoest’s ape and the pleasingly athletic Angola colobus. The  most crucial zoological place in Rwanda, Nyungwe houses nearly three-hundred bird species of which 24 are limited to not many Montane forests. However, the main flying highlight of this forest is blue turaco – a strange blue, green and red bird which flies from one tree to another like a  parade of aerodynamic hallucinatory turkeys.

A restfully countrified rest-house and ideally placed campsite lie close to the main roadways, and the forest reserve can be toured readily as a day tour from the cities of Cyangugu and Butare. However, Cyangugu does merrit more time; anyone who wishes to track chimpanzee and see many assortments of tinnier primates will require at least 2 days here. If you are passionate birdwatcher you might never wish to leave this place.
