Another attraction not to miss out when you are planning your next vacation to Rwanda is Nyungwe National Park situated in the Southern part of the country. The Park is one of the oldest rainforest in Africa and is known to be a source of many rivers including the river Nile that starts as water fall, goes on as Nyabarongo river that flows to the Centre of the Country post to the Kigali city and becomes Akagera river after meeting Akanyaru. Akanyaru will continue between Rwanda and Tanzania to throw itself in Victoria lake after which it becomes river Nile and continues to the northern part of Africa to meet the Mediterranean Sea in Egypt. When visiting Nyungwe National Park expect to see a variety of around 13 primate species including chimpanzees and colobus monkeys among others. The canopy walk which is a 90 meter suspended bridge offers a unique experience to visitors as you are able to explore the park and its surroundings from the top of trees of the forest. The Park also hosts around 300 bird species, 1068 plant species as well as 14o orchids.
