While at Volcanoes national park you spend the night at a perfect safari lodge with incredible views of the breath taking landscape of Rwanda “the land of a thousand hills”. Volcanoes national park is also home to the active and cheeky golden monkeys so golden monkey trekking is an activity to consider as well while on your safari in Rwanda.
Chimpanzees are very active compared to the mountain gorillas and this makes chimpanzee trekking a great activity to do while on safari in Rwanda. Chimpanzee trekking happens in Nyungwe forest national park which is one of Rwanda’s finest national parks. The national park is located in the south western part of Rwanda and is one of the oldest rain forest in Africa.
