Best forest canopy walkway: Nyungwe National Park Canopy Walkway, Rwanda

Almost 230ft (70m) above a lush ravine in Rwanda’s Nyungwe National Park are 525ft (160m) of sturdy suspension bridges and metal platforms, the perfect vantage point from which to witness the 13 primate species – including chimpanzees – and endless number of birds, butterflies, and more calling this park home.

The canopy walk appears after a hike of about an hour down the Igishigishigi trail, and is accessible on a US$60 guided tour. Walking sticks are offered before the tour begins, and with frequent rain muddying the trail (which includes steep sections), it’s highly recommended to grab one.
