Overview: 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.
Preparation for your birding trip: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.
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.
Depending on the location of the walk, your guide may be accompanied by an armed park ranger. You’ll also have the choice to hire a porter to accompany you on the walk. It's possible also to request a private guide.
No meals are included with the walk, but you’ll be served a light breakfast, or lunch, at your lodge prior to leaving for your walk. Do remember to take plenty of water with you for the walk.
