Nyungwe Forest National Park is an enormous high-altitude, mountainous tropical rainforest with a canopy that extends across the majestic hills of southeast Rwanda. It boasts a huge montane forest and is celebrated for its rich variety of flora and fauna. At least 200 different types of tree can be found here, along with hundreds of flowering plants, such as wild begonia, orchid and sensational giant lobelias. The forest is home to thirteen primate species, including the delightfully acrobatic angola colobus monkeys that move in troops of several hundreds. An estimated five hundred chimpanzees can be seen during the rainy season. An extensive network of well-maintained walking trails leads through the forest to various waterfalls and viewing points.
Nyungwe Forest Lodge lies in Nyungwe, exclusively in the middle of a tea farm at the edge of Nyungwe rainforest, which is inhabited by 13 different species of primates, including the chimpanzees. See Hotel
