Your 3 days Chimpanzee tracking safari in Rwanda Nyungwe Forest National Park starts as soon as you arrive at Kigali International Airport.

You drive through rolling hills and beautiful scenery, before arriving in Nyungwe National Park in the evening for relaxation, dinner, and overnight. Nyungwe is one of the few places in the world where you can look into the wonders and secrets of a rainforest, whilst barely disrupting the natural flow of life within it.

The park is home to the largest Afro-montane forest in East and Central Africa and one of the most ancient forests, dating back to before the last Ice Age.

As one of Africa’s oldest rainforests, Nyungwe also serves as an untamed habitat for over 500 chimps, as well as other species of primates.  Dedicated bird-watchers may never wish to leave with almost 300 species to be discovered. Enveloped in a myriad of wild orchids, trees, and ferns, Nyungwe is also a botanist’s paradise.
