Congo Nile Trail, Rubavu

#5 of 9 in Outdoors in Western Province
Encompassed by scenery of true African wilderness with a view of the Nile and Congo rivers, Congo Nile Trail provides an active vacation in nature. The trail is rustic--you'll need four-wheel drive, or plan to hike or cycle--and prepare for at least two- to three-days' journey. Besides of the beauty of unspoiled nature, the trail gives you the opportunity to glimpse the rural life through native villages. As this is a home to many African animals, consider going gorilla or primate tracking or birding as you traverse the trail.
