Nyungwe Forest National Park is one of the natural treasures of the remarkable Rwanda mostly covered by the verdant green foliage.

And a trip to this amazing park takes you to yet another adventure in Rwanda, the Nyungwe Canopy Walk, which is another unmissable activity just like for anyone making a trip to Rwanda just like the famous Gorilla Trekking safaris in the Volcanoes National Park.

As you enter the park, you will find information centers like Uwinka Visitor Centre which is one of the tourist information center in Nyungwe National Park.

At this point you will have started breathing in the intoxicating and invigorating forest air, a sneak peek of the experience that awaited you.

Dissemination of information regarding the park is done at the Uwinka Visitor Center, all the information on various trails available in the Nyungwe Forest National Park, the degree of difficulty to trek and the estimated time it would require.

Here you will also be briefed about the trail that would eventually take you to the Nyungwe Canopy Walk and also be handed walking sticks that would come in handy as you trek through the steep slopes.

The trek from Uwinka Reception Centre gives you an excellent opportunity to feast your eyes on the striking views that nature unfolds before you.

If you’re of luck you may have some exciting wildlife sightings of mainly primates including monkeys like Red-tailed monkeys, L’Hoest’s monkeys, Black and White Colobus and of course a wide range of birds.

Nyungwe National Park is indeed a prime destination for bird watchers. Boasting of more than 310 species of birds recorded here, it is a very important ornithological (study of birds) site in Rwanda. Also up to 27 Albertine Rift Endemics can be encountered here making it the highest concentration in Africa.

On an adventurous journey to Rwanda, you will be struck by the remarkable way this small East African country is focused on living in harmony with nature and promoting sustainable tourism.

Whether through cities like Kigali or any of the villages, you will realize how the entire country is seamlessly integrated with nature.
