Southern Rwanda
Southern Rwanda

Among towns and culture found in southern Rwanda, the highlight of region is Nyungwe National Park.

At over 1000 km2, Nyungwe is Africa’s largest protected mountain rainforest.

Nyungwe is the source of Africa’s great rivers. Rain that falls on the east side feeds the Nile and on the west runs to the Congo. The Congo-Nile Divide is a mountain range that runs north to south through Rwanda.

Nyungwe receives more than 2000mm a year of rain.

Recently, Nyungwe opened a canopy walk, the only one of its kind in East Africa. This is a wonderful vantage point to view the incredible biodiversity of this rare forest.
