3 Days Rwanda Chimpanzee Trekking

This 3 days Rwanda chimpanzee trekking safari will give you an intimate experience of tracking chimpanzees in Nyungwe forest national park. Nyungwe forest national park is located in southwestern Rwanda with great scenic views surrounded by tea plantations. Nyungwe forest is among the few remaining intact tropical forests in Africa. It is home to the Chimpanzees and the largest troops of colobus monkeys found anywhere else.

Depending on your interests – your safari can be organized so in addition to chimp trekking, you can have colobus monkey trekking, forest hikes to waterfalls, birding, and canopy walk. For this particular safari, it is organized specifically for chimpanzee trekking and canopy walk. However, depending on the available time on the last day – you can choose to add an extra activity before traveling back to Kigali.

Day 1: Travel from Kigali to Nyungwe forest national park via Huye

You will depart from Kigali to nyungwe forest preferably early morning after your breakfast so that we have enough time for a stopover at the ethnographic museum in Huye. The journey will take us through Nyanza district and eventually Huye. The ethnographic museum which is also the national museum of Rwanda showcases the historic and cultural aspects of Rwanda through the ages. It has materials and guides to take you through the rich Rwandan culture and history. We will have lunch after the museum experience before continuing on our journey to Nyungwe forest. The roads to Nyungwe after Huye are mostly winding which will give you amazing views of the famous ‘thousand hills’. You will be arriving at your lodge not too far from the nyungwe forest later that evening ready to take on the chimpanzee trekking the next day.

Journey time –  6 hours

Meal plan – Lunch & Dinner

Day 2: Chimpanzee Tracking & Canopy Walk in Nyungwe Forest national park

Chimpanzee trekking in Nyungwe forest national park starts very early in the morning and so this requires that you leave your lodge as early as 5.00 am to make it to the briefing area at the Uwinka overlook. Nyungwe forest has two main trailheads where Chimpanzee trekking happens i.e. Uwinka trail and another at Cyamudongo section. The forest is rich in botanical diversity hosting over 200 species of trees and flowering plants, 13 species of primates including, colobus monkeys, vervet monkeys, red-tailed monkeys, 300 bird species with several Albertine rift endemics and several species of butterflies. After the briefing, you will advise on which trail you will take. If it is Cyamudongo, it requires you to drive out for a certain distance and your driver-guide will transfer you to the starting point. After the chimp trekking, there is a canopy walk or return to the lodge for the needed time of relaxation and take the canopy walk later in the afternoon.
