Location

The Nyungwe rainforest is probably the best-preserved rainforest in the mountains throughout Central Africa. It is located in the watershed between the basin of the river Congo to the west and the basin of the river Nile to the east. From the east side of the Nyungwe Forest National Park comes also one of the branches of the Nile sources. Activities to encounter include the Rwanda chimpanzee tours and Rwanda primate adventure.

Rwanda is a flourishing country, it's small but bears the large title, “land of a thousand hills.” Rwanda is home to the “Virungas,” great old volcanoes that tower up to almost two point five miles and they are nearly covered with rich, green rainforest.

Rwanda’s countryside is characterized by rolling grasslands and areas of rugged mountains that extend southeast from a chain of volcanoes. Dian Fossey described these mountains as being “in the heart of central Africa, so high up that you shiver more than you sweat.”
