Nyungwe National Park is a destination for giving feedback on your return. It lies within the Albertine Rift Eco region one of Africa’s most important conservation sites rich in endemic species. With the flora diversity such as rain forest, bamboo, grassland, swamps and bogs, different species of birds can spotted. In this park birding has gotten different areas of sight and better views for bird watching. Bird species such as regal sun birds, blue headed sun birds, bar tailed trogon, Ross’s Turaco, double collard sun birds and Rwenzori Turaco to mention but a few  are spotted. With the different colours of these birds, you may think that Nyungwe is the only place endowered with such beautiful creatures.

Different areas in Nyungwe are known for the best view of these birds; the main road close to the campsite at Uwinka is a great place to watch a variety of birds in the dense forest. This is used because it a bit difficult to spot birds within the dense forest. Kayenzi Peninsula is also another site which provides good birding activities, a kilometer away from Ijwi Island on Lake Kivu. The site is easily accessed by boat from Rusizi. Gisakura Tea Estate also a great ideal area for bird watching making it possible to see more than 40 bird species in just an hour. Kumbya peninsula being a sanctuary for birds and animals, it is a sure deal for watching birds located 90 minutes north of Rusizi on the Lake shore.

Karamba Trail; it’s a 4km trail leading to a view point where you encounter a variety of bird species with the easiest trails.  Muzimu Trail; a 5.2km located north east of this park offering beautiful panoramic view over the park and lake Kivu as well as birding which is favored  by the low lying vegetations. Kamiranzovu Marsh Trail; starts 12km from Uwinka and 6km from Gisakura through the forest until you reach the park’s largest wetland. By the time you reach the end of this trail, a variety of swamp birds are spotted making it a memorable destination. Many trails help to discover the bird species just to mention but a few.
