3 Days Kigali City tour and Nyungwe National Park Safari

Tour summary
This 3- day tour takes one around Kigali city for a complete days excursion and to Nyungwe national park to tour the most intact rain forest in the east and central Africa.

Nyungwe is a natural forest aged thousands of years, covering over 1,015 square Kilo meters, found in the south western part of Rwanda bordering Burundis Kibira forest of 370 square Kilo meters in the south and Congo in the west.
The forest offers Chimpanzee tracking, colombus monkey tracking, canopy walk, birding, numerous hiking trails and village/tea picking experience.


 Day 1: Arrival, Kigali City tour and drive to Nyungwe

Upon arrival, you are picked by a driver guide and briefed about the days proceedings. Tour all historical sites including the genocide memorial museum, visit the conventional centre then drive to Nyamirambo- old Kigali and visit the local market and taste local cuisine for lunch.

Later on, embark on the winding road to Nyungwe forest National Park, arriving in the evening for overnight stay.

Day 2: Chimpanzee Tracking in Nyungwe Forest National Park

After an early breakfast and clad with packed lunch, meet at Nyungwe National park offices for briefing and grouping done by a ranger guide who leads you into the forest for the excursion.

Chimp tracking can be a little tough depending on fitness but very exciting when you meet these close cousins of humans, you are allowed an hour with them.  Remember to pack rain and hike gear, gloves, camera, mineral water, lunch and snacks to make the exercise easier. Return to the lodge after the days adventure.

Day 3:  Canopy walk, Columbus monkey tracking and return to Kigali

After a sunrise breakfast, drive to Winka visitor centre for the adventurous 200m walk above Nyungwe forest. The canopy lies 50m above the forest giving off fresh breath of air and magical sightings of the black and white colobus mountain monkeys.

After the walk, enjoy the beautiful scenic drive through the forest and tea plantations on the edge of the forest, stop in Huye for a hot lunch and later proceed to Kigali for your flight, bus or longer stay.
