What you'll do

A thrilling adventure awaits you on the Nyungwe Canopy Walk! Start off your day with a hearty breakfast. Post breakfast we will head south west to the verdant Nyungwe Forest National where we will experience the thrill of the vistas and views of the Canopy Walkway. Bring your camera!! This is a 45 minutes’ walk through the treetops of the forest.  From the park information center, we will descend the 40º vertical slant via a zig-zag foot path to the first tower deep in the forest valley. From here it will be a 1½ hr walk on the Canopy Walk’s suspension bridge. At this high picturesque level, the walk allows access to the upper parts of the forest, where one can see  unique ‘canopy’ species; apes, birds, butterflies, plants and insects, flowers and other animals that live in the roof of the forest. These species which are otherwise invisible from the forest floor can now be seen at your eye level, or look up for more surprises. From there you will enjoy your lunch and afterwards experience a nature walk in the gisakura tea plantations and then travel back to the hotel in Nyungwe.

After your morning breakfast, we will drive to the park headquarters to receive an educational briefing before entering the forest. We will receive important information about the dos and don’ts of encounters with the native chimpanzees. . The trekking chimpanzee experience can vary from 2-6 hours (depending on the guest's walking speed and practicality of distance). Watch the antics of chimpanzees up close. The forest is rich in unique types of trees and flora and is home to 13 primates that include chimpanzees, long-tailed monkeys and Columbus monkeys. After lunch, you will be transferred to kigali directly to your hotel or airport for your flight depending on the flight schedule.
