With primeval forests draped in an ethereal blanket of cloud, thundering waterfalls fed by ancient wetlands and such a profusion of flora and fauna that the phrase ‘exceptional biodiversity’ seems a ridiculous understatement, Nyungwe is a vision of paradise for any nature lover. One celebrated zoologist described this mountainous national park on Rwanda’s south-western corner as ‘Africa’s Galapagos Islands’, and it’s hard to disagree with this assessment.
Primate tracking on foot through the forest – there are not only chimpanzees but a dozen other species – is only one of the breathtaking adventures sure to create an indelible impression. The canopy, which you can get a monkey’s-eye view of thanks to a treetop suspended walkway, thrums with life waiting to be spotted: jewel-bright butterflies, birds in every hue and all manner of scurrying mammals. And back at ground level, there’s a profusion of plants of all shapes and sizes, from centuries-old tree ferns to more than 140 types of orchids.
