AKAGERA NATIONAL PARK

Akagera national park was gazetted in 1934 by the Belgian government, which was ruling Rwanda at the time. The park is named after River Akagera which passes along its eastern boundary with some tributaries pouring its water into Lake Ihema and other smaller lakes. It is located east of the country along the border with Tanzania and covers an area of 1,122 square kilometers. The park is mostly made up of savannah, montane and swampy vegetation.

The Rwanda Development Board (RDB) and the African Parks Network came to a 20 year renewable agreement for the joint management and development of Akagera national park. The Akagera Management Company was formed in 2010 as the joint management body for Akagera National Park. Over the next 5 years a $10 million expenditure was carried out in the national park area, with financial help from the Howard Buffett Foundation. The aim was to increase the security of the national park and to reintroduce locally extinct species.

Africa gorillas

In July 2015, seven lions from South Africa were introduced and released in the park, making them the first lions in Rwanda for 15 years. AndBeyond donated five lionesses from Phinda Private Game Reserve and Tembe Elephant Park in KwaZulu-Natal donated two male lions. This effort was described by African Parks as “a ground-breaking conservation effort for both the park and the country” as part of a project aimed at reversing the local extinction of the species in Akagera National Park

NYUNGWE FOREST NATIONAL PARK

Nyungwe forest national park was established in 2004 and covers an area of about 970 square kilometers. The park is made up of rainforest, bamboo, grassland, swamps and bogs. The Nyungwe rainforest is probably the best preserved montane rainforest in Central Africa. The parks altitude ranges between 1600-2950 meters above sea level. This vast tropical rain forest receives an annual 2000mm of rain.

The park is located in southwestern Rwanda, at the border with Burundi, to the south, and Lake Kivu and the Democratic Republic of the Congo to the west. It is located in the watershed between the basin of the river Congo to the west and the basin of the river Nile to the east. From the east side of the Nyungwe forest comes also one of the branches of the Nile sources. The nearest town is Cyangugu, 54 km to the west. Mount Bigugu is located within the park borders.

Brief history: During the colonial era in 1903, Nyungwe which was Colonial crown land was declared a forest reserve by the German colonial government. There was a period between 1958 and 1973, when the area reduced by due to fires, woodcutting and poaching of animals, the sq. km coverage of the forest reduced by a whole 150 sq. km. the forest was a home to a large number of elephants. In 1974, the last of the buffaloes was killed. Some biodiversity studies conducted in the area by the Wildlife conservation society revealed a vast population of Colobus living in groups of up to 400 members. Tourist and research facilities were later set up in Uwinka, but most of these were destroyed during the genocide in 1994.

Then the restoration work began in 1995, in an environment that was still riddled with paranoia and uncertainty. But the work went on and in 2005 Nyungwe forest was declared a national park and officially a protected area. The designation of “National Park” is the highest protection level in Rwanda in terms of nature conservation.

Nyungwe is an important water catchment for Rwanda and contains many natural resources that are quite useful to the Rwandan people.

The beautiful green forest is also quite important to two of Africa’s great rivers. Rain that falls on the east side feeds the Nile and on the west runs to the Congo.

VOLCANOES NATIONAL PARK

Volcanoes national park is located in northwestern Rwanda and covers an area of about 160 square kilometers. The park borders with Mgahinga national park in Uganda and Virunga national park in Democratic Republic of Congo. The park is a tropical forest and encompasses 5 of the 8 Virunga volcanoes; Muhabura, Bisoke, Karisimbi, Sabyinyo and Gahinga. The park was gazetted in1925 intended to protect mountain gorillas from poachers.

The park later became the base for the American naturalist Dian Fossey to carry out her research about gorillas. She arrived in 1967 and set up the Karisoke Research Centre between Karisimbi and Visoke. From then on she spent most of her time in the park, and is widely credited with saving the gorillas from extinction by bringing their plight to the attention of the international community. She was murdered by unknown assailants at her home in 1985, a crime often attributed to the poachers she had spent her life fighting against. She is buried in the park in a grave close to the research center, and amongst the gorillas which became her life.

During the Rwandan civil war in 1992, the research centre was abandoned, and all tourist activities like gorilla trekking were stopped. They did not resume again until 1999 when the area was deemed to be safe and under control. There have been occasional infiltrations by Rwandan rebels from the Democratic Forces for the Liberation of Rwanda in subsequent years, but these are always stopped quickly by the Rwandan army and there is thought to be no threat to tourism in the park.

The park is a home to a variety of wildlife that ranges from various animal and plant species. The park is best known for the mountain gorilla. Other mammals include: golden monkey, black-fronted duiker, buffalo, spotted hyena and bushbuck. The bushbuck population is estimated to be between 1760–7040 animals. There are also reported to be some elephants in the park, though these are now very rare. There are 178 recorded bird species, with at least 13 species and 16 subspecies endemic to the Virunga and Ruwenzori Mountains.

The Vegetation within the park varies considerably due to the large altitudinal range. There is some lower montane forest. Between 2400 and 2500 m, there is Neoboutonia forest. From 2500 to 3200 m bamboo forest occurs, covering about 30% of the park area. From 2600 to 3600 m, mainly on the more humid slopes in the south and west, is Hagenia-Hypericum forest, which covers about 30% of the park. This is one of the largest forests of Hagenia abyssinica. The vegetation from 3500 to 4200 m is characterized by Lobelia wollastonii, L. lanurensis, and Senecio erici-rosenii and covers about 25% of the park. From 4300 to 4500 m grassland occurs. Secondary thicket, meadows, marshes, swamps and small lakes also occur, but their total area is relatively small.

Things to do in Volcanoes National Park

Volcanoes national park is a home to 10 habituated gorilla families which are all open for trekking by tourists. They include the Susa A group which derives its name from the Susa River and known to have been monitored by Dian Fossey-the famous primatologist, Sabyinyo family which is headed by the hugest silverback gorilla “Guhonda” in the entire Volcanoes National Park, Amahoro, Hirwa, Ugenda, Agashya, Kwitonda, Umubano, Karisimbi and Bwenge.

The 10 habituated gorilla families translate to 80 permits and only eight visitors are assigned to track one group per day. The trek takes from 30 minutes to 8 hours depending on location of gorillas, nature of the habitat, visitor speed and many other factors. Visitors are given only one hour to be with the apes in the wild, explore their behavior and take as many photos as possible. Across the world, it is only in Uganda, Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo where you can have a chance to see these rare species while they are still in their natural habitat.

The trekking permit in Rwanda is at $1500

Golden monkeys are fascinating creatures that are worth tracking while on your visit to the park. These monkeys can only be found in the Virunga region and part of Kahuzi biega national park. The golden monkeys are a sub species of the Sykes monkey also famous as the blue monkey. There are 2 habituated golden monkey groups that consist of around 80 individuals, and the groups are open for tracking by tourists. The activity starts at 7am and takes from 30 minutes to 3 hours and you only have an hour face to face with the monkeys. Unlike the gorillas, golden monkeys shall be expected to be spotted jumping from one bamboo plant to another as they go about their daily activities.

The park is a home to over 13 primate species. Apart from chimpanzee trekking, you can also look for other primates like; the grey cheeked Mangabeys and Ruwenzori colobus Monkeys in Nyungwe Forest. These monkeys can also be seen in large groups of up to 300 colobus monkeys.

Also as you track any of the primate group, you will likely see some other monkeys along the trek. These might include; L’ Hoest’s monkey, the Owl faced monkeys, Mona monkey and the blue monkeys. The forest is also a primate country and you can also trek the chimps, the gray cheeked and the Colobus monkeys in the ancient forest.

Volcanoes national park is a home to over 200 bird species, an exciting place for a birder. There are various trails that visitors follow as they look for these birds. Some of the notable birds you will expect to spot include; Rwenzori Turacos, Rwenzori double collared sunbird, Handsome Francolin, strange weaver, dusky crimson wing, collared apalis, archer’s ground robin, Grauer’s rush warbler, red faced woodland warbler and many more.

Dian fossey was an American primatologist and conservationist known for undertaking an extensive study of mountain gorilla groups from 1966 until her 1985 murder. She studied them daily in the mountain forests of Rwanda, initially encouraged to work there by paleoanthropologist Louis Leakey.

The Dian Fossey tomb hike is one way that you can best explore more about Dian Fossey’s conservation life. For those who have watched “Gorillas in the Mist” movie, it entails more about Dian Fossey’s life and her research camp in the Volcanoes National Park. The trek to the tomb site lasts for about 3 hours where you find the beloved gorillas “Digit” and her resting site. Dian Fossey is known to have saved the critically endangered mountain gorillas that the world is proud of today. Her research work and conservation was facilitated by the Karisoke research center that she established at a time of her research in 1967. She conducted her research on mountain gorillas for over 18 years but unfortunately she was murdered by unknown people in 1985. The surrounding area features spectacular scenic views and wildlife species, birds as well as primates. The trek also comes with views from golden monkeys and at times the rare mountain gorillas and birdlife.

Apart from trekking primates, the volcanoes with in the park can be trekked too. This activity offers breathe taking experiences to hikers and adventure enthusiast.

For hiking adventures within the park; you can climb Mount Bisoke which comes with spectacular Crater Lake on its top. The trek lasts for seven hours plus the two that you spend while descending back to the starting point. The hikes start at 7:00am with briefing from park official and then you will be assigned a guide. Mount Bisoke stands at 3711 meters above sea level and it features a number of stunning floras, and offers opportunity for visitors to catch a glimpse of the remarkable views of Virunga Volcanoes and the Crater Lake “Ngezi.” The hikes are less strenuous and even a person without experience can hike through it.

Karisimbi hike; this volcano features as the highest out of all the 8 Great Virunga Volcanoes. It stretches up to 4507 meters above sea level and features as the sixth highest in Africa. To hike to its summit takes 2 days and above where you will first camp around 3700 meters and catch a glimpse of stunning Mount Bisoke. The second day takes you to the summit and return to where you started from.

The top of this mountain meets hikers with views of many geographical features, vegetation and sceneries. This mountain was named after amasimbi which denotes white shell in Kinyarwanda due to its white capped summit. The trek is breathtaking compared to Bisoke Mountain but the experiences thereafter are worth the trek

For cultural tours around the park, you can engage in Iby’Iwacu cultural village visit. This cultural encounter was local community project to help previous poachers choose to support conservation and protection of mountain gorillas and other animals around the park. In other wards the centre was put up to teach the locals about tourism and also appreciate tourism activities in their region. The cultural site is situated near Volcanoes National Park. Rwanda historical and present time is kept in its way for tourists to personally engage in cultural experience. It can be visited within a few hours or you can choose to spend a night in a traditional style Rwandan home that will also make up part of your experience in Rwanda. There are also traditional meals and drinks like banana beer or you may have a taste of banana juice. You can be part of people participating in riding a wooden bicycle, grinding millet and sorghum, shooting bows and arrows with the unique Batwa people, be entertained by the Intore dances people and also explore more on banana and sorghum that are used as staple food in Rwanda. You can as well take part in the demonstration of the Rwandan marriage ceremony.
