Chimpanzees are far from the only creature that will fascinate wildlife lovers in Nyungwe as with thirteen recorded species, the park is home to East Africa's most diverse primate population. Nyungwe is the only location in Africa where you'll find "supergroups" of more than 400 Colobus monkeys and one of the few places worldwide where you'll see L'Hoest monkeys (primarily on the main round near Uwinka). Another rare animal you might also run into is the owl-faced monkey, an Albertine Rift endemic that inhabits Nyungwe's southern forests. In fact, most of the monkey species found in the park are endemic.

Requirements

You should bring a raincoat as rain frequently falls in Nyungwe. But if you don't come with a raincoat, you can rent one as well as walking boots and sticks.
