We had a great time doing a canopy walk and one of the trails (3.5hrs, umuyove trail). Nice views and good experience of rainforest. Next time I would just do a longer hike as I found the canopy walk overpriced and it is a shame...More

We went to walk the canopy. Frankly to high for me but my wife and son loved it. The Park is so beautiful with some incredible views, and an excellent guide.

The Nyungwe Forest Canopy walk is not for the light headed! It was a lovely adrenaline filled walk from canopy to canopy with a breath taking view of the forest.

This National Park is incredible, views of green mountains as far as the eye can see. Hiking tracks are well signed and the park is clean with great facilities.

What a beautiful forest! It's about 4 hours south of Kigali (and you can get there by renting a car, hiring a private driver, or taking an assortment of cheap buses), and there are many options for hiking in nature. The prices vary, depending on...More

I visited with a few of my friends to do the canopy walk. Although the walk itself was a little scary it was a good experience. Our guide, Kristoff, was very knowledgeable and pointed out several animals on out hike. Very glad we were able...More

We went to Nyungwe in Feb, and also struggled with getting there. The only options is hiring a car, or hiring a driver/taxi. We paid $400 for 4 days travel (Kigali-Kibuye-Gisakura-Kitabi-kigali). So I think probably $100... More
