Visitors to Nyungwe National Park can experience the rainforest from a new perspective: the Canopy Walkway. Hanging 60 meters above the forest floor between giant trees and towers, East Africa's only Canopy Walkway provides a stunning view of the park's amazing wildlife and nature. The Walkway is accessible as part of a specialized guided tour along the Igishigishigi trail or if you're not part of a tour, hiking the Imbaraga or Umuyove trails.

The dizzying platform is above a steep and deep valley across a massive forest. This impressive walkway with its three towers is the biggest in East Africa.

The hanging platform which allows tourists to view different animal species in Nyungwe forest spreads over hundreds of square meters and will allow tourists to be at the "eye-to-eye level" with different primate species, and many bird species, all of which are fond of inhabiting the upper strata of the forest.

Nyungwe is the largest and most ancient Afro-Montane forest remaining in East Africa, dating back to the last ice age. The forest has 13 rare primate species, the world's largest ever recorded arboreal troop of black/white colobus monkeys, over 300 species of birds and 100 types of orchid.
