Nyungwe Forest

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.
