Bird Walk in Nyungwe Forest

Bird Walk in Nyungwe Forest

Nyungwe Forest National Park is a delight for birdwatchers, with over 300 bird species recorded, including 27 species endemic to the Albertine Rift. Three of these, the Albertine owlet, red-collared babbler and Rockefeller's sunbird, are unrecorded elsewhere on the eastern side of the Albertine Rift.

Start time:
You'll wake up early to drive into the national park, meet your guide around 6.00am, then head down to the forest. This walk is also possible in the afternoon, departing at 3.00pm.

Guide:
Your dedicated driver-guide will be with you for the duration of your trip in Rwanda – they’ll accompany you to the park headquarters, and introduce you to your birding guide.

Duration of excursion:
The duration of your trek is usually between two and four hours.

Maximum size of group:
The maximum group size is six, accompanied by a guide and, depending on the location of the walk, an armed park ranger. You’ll also have the choice to hire a porter to accompany you on the trek. It's possible also to request a private guide.

Meals included:
No meals are included with the trek, but you’ll be served a light breakfast, or lunch, at your lodge prior to trekking.
Do remember to take plenty of water with you for the trek.
