Rwanda Eco Tour
Day 1: Pick up in Kigali and transfer to Nyungwe National Park – Canopy walkway in the park. On the way you will visit the King's Palace and the ethnographic museum in Butare.
Stop for lunch at E-Bis and later head to Nyungwe Forest for the afternoon activity.
The Canopy Walkway is one of the most touristy highlights, a 70-meter bridge above the beautiful green canopy of the ancient Nyungwe Forest.
From the bridge you can identify some amazing birds.
Dinner and overnight stay at Emeraude Kivu resort (45 min. drive from the park)

Day 2: Chimpanzee tracking and afternoon at leisure or visit the tea plantation in Gisakura and learn more about tea from crop to cup ($30 extra).
Early breakfast (5am) then transfer to park headquarters for briefing and grouping, followed by a drive to the edge of the forest to track the nearest human chimpanzee.
There are two groups of common chimpanzees in the Nyungwe Forest, the larger one consists of about 60 plus chimpanzees, while the smaller group of 30 is monitored in the Cyamudongo Forest area of the park.

Nyungwe Forest, Africa's largest Afro-Montane Forest, is home to about 500 chimpanzees and almost 100 that are habituated to humans nearby. The forest is the perfect addition to a Gorilla Safari in Volcanoes National Park. Pre-Trackers are ready to help you find your usual chimpanzee groups in the forest.
Chimpanzees, like mountain gorillas, move daily and make their nests in new areas.

The Pre-Trackers start at the location where the chimpanzees were the day before and find today's location where the chimpanzees have moved.
As you look for your chimpanzee groups, you will most likely see other forest-dwelling primates, such as the large groups of Colobus monkeys.
Add to that the sights and sounds of this rainforest, while in season you can see wild orchids and plants and trees that make up this vast rainforest.

Long before you see the chimpanzees, you can hear their almost deafening screams, their screams and their cackling.
Unlike the mountain gorillas, which are quite calm when you visit them, the chimpanzees are active both on the ground and in the trees. A great sight for the Trekkers who visit that day. You get an hour with the chimpanzees in Nyungwe, an hour that is very memorable.
