See the notorious chimps

Unlike the mountain gorillas, Chimpanzees are very vocal & mobile. They are famous for being heard from a distance, before finally catching a sight of hopping across tree tops, foraging some fruits or hunting for mammals.

See the largest waterfall of Nyungwe National Park

A trail that is a must experience on list of many explorers. Early in the morning, walk past open-air tea farms, amidst butterflies hovering over wildflowers, on trails winding up & down steep hillsides, that are densely vegetated

Explore in the company of locals

Rangers lead the way as experts in tracking the chimps. For nature trails, special guides take you through paths, some which only they know about. Together they act as your friends and guards, to keep both the environment and you safe

One and Only Nyungwe House

Situated amidst tea states, living here would mean living adjacent to the beating heart of the forest. The primates regularly visit the individual cabins. The misty pathways here are always a delight to walk
