2 day Nyungwe Forest National Park safari package
Our 2 day Nyungwe Forest National Park safari package will allow visitors to experience one of Rwanda’s ancient forests that are home to chimps, as Nyungwe Forest National Park has the highest population of primates in Rwanda. This safari will last only 2 days. It is short but so amazing. If you’re in Rwanda for a conference or business trip, you can opt to book our 2 day Nyungwe Forest National Park safari package to explore Rwanda as a country. As you are driving to Nyungwe Forest National Park, you will make a stopover at the ethnographic museum of Rwanda, where you will learn more about the cultural attachment of Rwanda as a country and the historical significance of the Rwanda people.
You will be ushered into Nyungwe, which is known as the dense forest that has remained standing for a long time despite the threats of the increased human population. You will be amazed by the countryside community villages and the winding roads as you experience several stunning hills and mountains. You will see these as you are led to your booked hotel in Nyungwe Forest National Park. After chimpanzee trekking, you will enjoy the canopy walks in Nyungwe Forest National Park.
What to expect on 2 day Nyungwe Forest National Park safari package
Canopy walks among several attractions
Day 1: Drive from Kigali to Nyungwe Forest National Park
Our 2 day Nyungwe forest National Park safari package in Rwanda will begin with a pick-up from Kigali International Airport or a city hotel by an Africa adventure vacations guide, followed by a drive to Nyungwe forest National Park after an early morning breakfast. There are higher chances of making a stopover at the ethnographic museum, which was originally called the National Museum of Rwanda, where you will learn more about the Rwanda history, have lunch, and then continue to Nyungwe Forest National Park, where you will engage in canopy walks in the forest. The road trip to Nyungwe is a bit long, but with the rewarding safari experiences of the various Rwanda hills, seeing Lake Kivu and the Kibira National Park in Burungi, this makes the work a wonderful safari.

Day 2: Begin the day with chimp trekking before returning to Kigali.
Our 2nd day of our 2 day Nyungwe Forest National Park safari package will be the chimpanzee trekking day. The chimpanzee trekking process starts early in the morning at around 5am, where you will be driven to the park headwaters. Usually the chimpanzee trekking briefing in Nyungwe Forest National Park happens at the Uwinka visitors centre in Nyungwe Forest before the actual chimpanzee activity. The chimpanzee trekking briefing is done to make sure that the visitors get all the instructions to follow when in the jungle trying to follow the chimpanzees. The Nyungwe Forest National Park is so rich in diversity that the forest features more than 200 tree species, more than 300 bird species, and several flowering plants. Apart from these, the forest also has more than 13 species of primates and these include, among other things, the red-tailed monkeys, silver monkeys, olive baboons, grey-cheeked mangabey, vervet monkeys, and Ruwenzori Colobus monkeys, among other species. Some of the primates will be seen as you trek with the chimpanzees.
Once the briefing has been conducted, you will be divided into different groups depending on the number present at the briefing center. One of the chimpanzee trekking groups will commence at Uwika center, and another group will start trekking chimpanzees at Cyamudongo. For this, you will need the driver to drive you to the starting point. The ranger guide of the park will be in constant communication with the trackers that go into the forest early in the morning to track the chimpanzees before you the visitors. When the trackers see the gorillas, they will communicate with the ranger guide, who will lead you to the forest where the chimpanzees have been communicating. Once you have seen the chimpanzees, you will spend only one hour with them, where you will be able to learn more about their feeding habitats, take photos, and you are free to ask any questions that you want. Our 2 day Nyungwe Forest National Park safari package will stop here, and after trekking chimpanzees, you will drive back to Kigali or be taken to Kigali International Airport for drop off.
