Nyungwe National Park

Comprising roughly 240,000 pristine acres of rainforest, Nyungwe Forest National Park lies in the south-west of Rwanda, and is contiguous with Kibira Park in Burundi. Widely regarded as the best preserved montane rainforest in Central Africa, Nyungwe is home to 13 different species of primates (25% of Africa's total) as well as a wealth of other fauna and flora, much of it endemic.

The Park's biodiversity stems from its location along the watershed for Africa's two largest rivers - the Congo basin lies to the west and the Nile basin to the east, reinforcing the importance of Nyungwe Forest for conservation in Africa. In addition to its unspoiled beauty, the Park's major highlights for the international traveler are its chimpanzee and colobus monkey populations - combining Nyungwe with Volcanoes and Akagera Parks provides visitors to Rwanda the opportunity to view chimpanzees, gorillas, and the savanna "Big Five" in one country.
