Nyungwe Canopy Walk

Nyungwe Forest National Park, Rwanda

Located in the southwest corner of Rwanda, the tropical rain forest of Nyungwe is famed for its rich biodiversity and high, lush canopy. At this eco-lover’s dream, the vegetation clears out to reveal a dreamlike center where primates thrive among the towering mahoganies and orchids compete with butterflies for attention. Adrenaline junkies should climb up onto eastern Africa's only canopy tour, whose metal bridges are suspended nearly 200 feet above the forest floor, for a bird’s-eye view of this sprawling national treasure.
