Highlights and Main Attractions of Nyungwe Forest National Park
Set in southwest Rwanda, within a protected national park founded in 2004, Nyungwe is one of Africa’s oldest forests, and rainforest in its purest sense, with regular rainfalls of up to 2,000mm per annum.
As the largest single tract of montane forest that remains in Central/Eastern Africa, the area is of utmost importance to Rwandan tourism and it is undoubtedly one of the country’s main attractions with waterfalls, abundant wildlife, and viewpoints over the idyllic scenery.
Absolutely teeming with wildlife, the national park is a great destination to include, especially if you like primates; its verdant forests are a haven for 13 species in total.
