Situated in the southwest corner of Rwanda extending for 1000 km. sq. is Nyungwe Forest, one of the largest montane forests in East and Central Africa. Dating back to before the ice age with its prehistoric atmosphere it’s incredibly rich in biodiversity.
Nyungwe harbors 13 species of primates including chimpanzees, l’hoests, monkey, colobus and mangabeys.
With several endemic bird species the forest also supports 250 types of trees, shrubs and flowering plants including 100 species of orchid and giant lobelia standing like sentinels, as if extraterrestrial.
