Colobus Monkey Trekking in Nyungwe Forest National Park

Colobus Monkey Trekking in Nyungwe Forest National Park

One of the tourist attractions of Nyungwe Forest National Park, a dense forest in western Rwanda known for housing 13 species of primates, including chimpanzees, is Colobus Monkey Trekking. The Canopy Walkway, a suspended metal bridge that gives tourists a perspective of the forest, is another well-known feature of this national park. Tourists that visit Rwanda like to take part in Colobus Monkey Trekking in Nyungwe Forest National Park.

It is necessary to combine chimpanzee trekking or the Canopy Walk walk when organising a trip with colobus monkeys. This amazing journey begins in Kigali and travels via the southern western route through the town of Nyanza. Here, you may see the southern province’s Royal Palace Museum and the Ethnographic Museum in Huye Town. On the same day, you will continue your journey to visit the Nyungwe forest after lunch. After arriving, proceed to your lodging to be ready for the Colobus Monkey Trekking the following day, which can be coupled with a Canopy Walk hike or chimpanzee trekking.

After climbing up a volcano, such as Bisoke Volcano or Kalisimbi Volcano, or going on a gorilla safari, guests who are extending their journey from Volcanoes National Park can engage in colobus monkey trekking. You go via Lake Kivu in the western region of Rwanda after participating in activities at Volcanoes National Park. Before moving on to Nyungwe Forest National Park for the next day’s colobus monkey trekking, tourists can opt to take a tour of Kivu’s coffee plantations, take a boat ride around the lake and explore several islands, or spend the night fishing.
