Chimpazee tracking and canopy walk

Rwanda Chimpanzee trekking in Nyungwe forest national park starts very early in the morning and so this requires that you leave your lodge as early as 5.00 am to make it to the briefing area. Nyungwe forest has two main trail heads where Chimpanzee trekking happens i.e. Uwinka trail and another at Cyamudongo section. The forest is rich in botanical diversity hosting over 200 species of trees and flowering plants, 13 species of primates including, colobus monkeys, vervet monkeys, red-tailed monkey, 300 bird species with several Albertine rift endemics and several species of butterflies. If it is Cyamudongo, it requires you to drive out for a certain distance and your driver guide will transfer you to the starting point. After the chimp trekking, there is a canopy walk or return to the lodge for the needed time of relaxation and take the canopy walk later in the afternoon.
