Christmas in Nyungwe

Over christmas we also got to visit Nyungwe.  This time we saw orchids and not many animals.  Maybe we are louder on foot than in a car, or maybe the animals are just smaller in Nyungwe.  We did 2 different trails, Igishigishigi and of course Kamiranzovu swamp trail.  With the Igishigishigi trail we also did the canopy walkway about 80m above the forest floor.  It gave us amazing views.

    Jacob, Jacob, Jess and me have been checking the orchids and agree that the pink terrestrial is Satyrium crassicaule (the pink form – we have seen the white form in Nyungwe before) and the Bulbophyllum is Bulbophyllum josephi
    Nice photos.
