 Detailed  itinerary.

Day 1: Transfer to Nyungwe forest – Canopy walk

Depending on your location in Kigali, meet your driver and head to Nyungwe national park. This is a 6-7 hours’ drive arriving Nyungwe in the afternoon. Have either en route lunch in Butare or Huye. Proceed to Nyungwe forest and first report for your canopy walk experience. This is a walking trail connected to a swing bridge 50 meters in length suspended from large trees. The canopy walk gives a amazing view of the rainforest and the surrounding mountains with a bird’s eye view, spotting some primates moving about below is incredible. Retreat from the activity and connect to your provided accommodation to refresh, have dinner and night rest.

Accommodation; Nyungwe One and Only lodge – luxury option/Nyungwe Top Hill View Hotel – mid-range option/Gisakura Visitors Center – budget option

Day 2: Chimpanzee/primate tracking – return to Kigali

On this second and last day of your trip, enjoy your early morning breakfast then meet your guide to connect to the park head office to meet your ranger and also receive a briefing about the endangered chimpanzees before entering the forest in search of the active and playful fellows in Nyungwe forest. The Chimpanzees are much easier to spot as they jump from one tree to another, chattering and laughing. Chimpanzee tracking usually takes about 3-5 hours. On finding them, you are allowed an hour to spend with them while taking pictures and videos. Immediately after trekking, return to meet your guide and drive back to return to Kigali with en-route lunch. Your Safari guide will either drop you at a location your will advise or at the airport for your night flight.  End of 2 Days Safari
