The very influential South African NGO African Parks has been chosen by the Rwandan authorities to manage Nyungwe National Park for the next 20 years. Kigali justifies this choice by its intention to improve the method of conservation of fauna and flora and to strengthen the tourist offer of the country. Located in the heart of the Albertine Rift, Nyungwe records more than 1000 species of plants, 300 species of birds and 13 species of primates. It also supplies 70% of the country’s water. This is the second park awarded to African Parks in Rwanda, after Akagera in the east of the country.
