Nyamasheke to Huye via Nyamagabe

While in Nyamasheke, I toured the district extensively and created lasting memories. From Nyungwe National Park to Lake Kivu and everything in between, I enjoyed every part of this expedition.

When I was done with Nyamasheke, I twisted the throttle and spun my spokes all the way to Huye via Nyamagabe. I had two coffee breaks along the way. The two breaks were preceded by a stopover at Gisakura Tea Estate.

The venue of my first coffee break was Chimpanzee Lodge in Bushekeri Sector, Nyamasheke District. Upon arrival, I sat on the terrace overlooking Nyungwe National Park. The view from my table was breathtaking.

It took me a whole hour to cross the forest. The meandering trans Nyungwe highway has many steep gradients and slopes. I was awestruck by thick vegetation winding through the landscape, covering the surface and falling over deep valleys.

When I emerged on the other side, I took another break. This time at Nyungwe Nziza Ecolodge. This lodge is located in Kitabi Sector, Nyamagabe District. Usually, the campfire is my favorite spot in the facility. Since I wasn’t there to camp, I consumed my coffee from the open air restaurant.

When I finally made it to Huye, I spent some time fine-tuning the new itinerary. I was eager to discover what this Southern Province district has to offer. From one sub destination to another, remarkable Rwanda never disappoints.
