Rwanda Energy Group (REG) is working on a project to install streetlights to a total 97-kilometer road network of Nyamagabe – Nyamasheke and Pindura- Bweyeye, which meanders through the park.
“Within two months, we shall have connected that road to the national grid. The intention is to assure security, promote business and tourism in Nyungwe and its vicinity,” said Joseph Ntwari , the REG regional director in Rusizi district.
Nyungwe road is also used by tourists who visit the only canopy walkway in East Africa and the rich biodiversity of the Nyungwe natural forest. Nyungwe National Park receives an average of 40 visitors every day, according to Ntihemuka.
