Waterfall walk in Nyungwe Forest
The Waterfall Trail is a stunner of a hike and one of the highlights of Nyungwe. It starts from the Gisakura side of the park and takes three to five hours. The trail winds up and down steep hillsides through primeval looking 'Hollywood' style rainforest where the trees are festooned in vines and the air is heavy and damp. The highlight is a remote waterfall, where you can take a shallow dip. As you hike through the forest to the falls look out for some birds, different tree and plant species and some monkey species like vervets, black and white colobus monkeys among many more.
