Nyungwe Forest National Park (Activities and Safaris)
Our Nyungwe Forest National Park Informative Guide contains all you need to know about this lovely Nyungwe National Park, Rwanda. Here you will find the most up-to-date information on the park’s attractions, activities, best times to visit, location, and lodging options. The Nyungwe Forest is located in southern Rwanda, near the border with Burundi, and is bordered to the south by the Kibira National Park and to the west by Lake Kivu and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
The Nyungwe rainforest is perhaps Central Africa’s best-preserved montane rainforest. It is positioned in the watershed between the Congo River basin to the west and the Nile River basin to the east. One of the Nile’s branches emerges from the east side of the Nyungwe forest. Nyungwe Forest Park was formed in 2004 and has around 970 km2 of rainforest, bamboo, grassland, wetlands, and bogs. Cyangugu, 54 kilometers to the west, is the nearest town. Mount Bigugu is inside the park’s boundaries.
