Went to see the mountain gorillas but actually went in via Uganda as the visa was much cheaper than on the Rwanda side. Hard work to trek into the forest but certainly worth it to be up close and personal with these beautiful creatures!
Your looking for something which will give you a cool feel, relaxed and have a lovely moment with your loved one. This is the place to be. The landscape is lovely. I have done a lot of safaris for my self and my clients, as...More
I went to the forest with them help if BB Travels and Jeffrey Travels. The staff and rangers at the forest are knowledgeable and friendly. The forest is immense with so many different animals and birds. I especially enjoyed seeing for the first time in...More
and it was worth it. A guide and 6 trackers helped us bushwack down 1200 feet to find the troop. We watched for a generous hour, then the chimps were ready to leave trees for the day. One ran up the hill past us only...More
We did the chimp trekking and colobus trekking. The rating is based on the beauty of the forest, the abundance of monkey and chimp sightings, and the trails. Some of the trails had steps and benches. Daniel happened to be our guide on both occasions...More
This place is worth making time to visit. The park has remarkable primary rainforest with a fascinating fauna. Other reviews online have complained that the activities are very managed (hikes start 2 times per day and you need a guide). We didn't find this onerous...More
Let me be very clear: the 2/5 grade is not on the forest itself, which is beautiful, but on the way activities are handled. One month in advance we booked and payed 60$ for the canopy trail and just a few days before leaving we...More
We were here during the rain season, so obvious: we had rain! Nevertheless I would recommend to visit Rwanda including this park in the rain season. A big plus is that there are very few tourists. So we had twice a guide for ourselves. The...More
The Western province is scenic with the lush hills and tea plantations. Nygunwe is a little gem in the heart of the province with mountain monkeys crossing the road and chimpanzees playing in the trees. The canopy walk is also worth doing for those who...More

My daughter and I actually joined a truck and camp trip that had started in South Africa and wound its way up through Africa.They picked us up in Rwanda and took us into Uganda which was cheaper by far to see the gorillas. A couple had been on it for 6 weeks on their honeymoon and got off when we did (we were on it for 4 days) they were ready to get off. We enjoyed the trip but I am too old for hostels which I did not enjoy (2 nights) but the camping was lovely, would always go for that in the future. Really enjoyed all the people on the huge truck and of course we all went into the rain forest together to find the gorillas. They could have gone ahead with a faster group but insisted they wanted to come with me and my daughter. It was very special and activities on the way including making banana beer! Thoroughly enjoyed it!

All of our treks were arranged by our tour operator. It might be best to contact the park directly. There are two park offices in Nyungwe and different treks depart from each one. If you’re unable to arrange permits ahead of time, you should plan going to one of the offices immediately upon arrival in the area to make your bookings. There’s a bit of paperwork and I believe they require a copy of your passport photo/personal information page. There were only three other people on our chimpanzee trek and we were the only two on our colobus monkey trek, so I don’t think these activities would be overbooked. The canopy walk had many more participants (at least sixteen) but I didn’t see anyone turned away.
Sorry I can’t be of more help.
