Nyungwe 2012

After three fantastic days with the gorillas (read blog HERE) I had some time to test out the photo opportunities in Nyungwe and Akagera. These destinations are unknown by most photographers, but within a few years, they will become much more popular. Nyungwe especially, is one of Africa’s hidden natural wonders, and is highly recommended for photographers.

Below are some of the photos from the days spent in Nyungwe and Akagera. If you are inspired to visit the rain forests of Nyungwe, we will be arranging a photo safari to this area on 21-25/2 2013, between the two gorilla safaris in February 2013. More info about this trip will soon be published.
