Nyungwe Forest National Park in the south west of Rwanda is a significant factor that has contributed to the popularity of Rwanda as tourist destination world over prompting world travelers to plan safaris to Rwanda.
The site not only presents a remarkable place for relaxation but also
presents a remarkable adventure experience in Rwanda dubbed the land of a
thousand hills. Nyungwe Forest National Park stands as the largest
protected mountain forest in the region that covers between 1600 to 2000
km2 rising in the hilly landscapes of south western Rwanda 268km about
six (6) hours’ drive from Kigali, the country’s capital. It is always
accessed through Butare or through Kibuye and Cyangungu by travelers on safaris in Rwanda.
One of the remarkable adventures would be walking on top of this
forest. The famous Nyungwe Canopy walk is by no means beyond the
ordinary. The 90m walk way penetrates into the lush forest canopy cover
whose experience can hardly be matched with something else. The two (2)
hour transfer from the visited center to the canopy presents a slippery
hike as the forest is perched in the mountain. For the first time
adventure travelers on safaris in Rwanda can consider the walk as an endless walk to hell
The walk way which is suspended amidst big trees provide a thrill of
fresh air and impressive Ariel view of the forest not forgetting the
magical sights of the birds as the fly over. The Nyungwe canopy is such
adventurous Rwanda safari
activity that one should encounter before leaving the planet of the
living. The sights of butterflies and primate species including black
and white colobus monkeys and blue moneys derive exciting experience.
The upper parts of the canopy are dominated by the hard wood trees
while the lower layers are marked by impressive views of purple orchids.
This is a remarkable adventure to be included on the list of what to
encounter while planning safaris to Rwanda.
