The Canopy Walkway is EXTREMELY well built. Because you can't see all the way to the bottom, it is somehow less scary. Our kids were fine. We took a few deep breaths. But then did it again. The Ishigishigi Trail takes you to the Canopy Walkway, but it is a good 2 hours of steep up and down with a small family and involved some carrying on the way back. We then saw monkeys near Gisakura with a guide. It was 1 hour and $40 per adult. But you don't pay to get in to the park and this is the equivalent. We saw a few Colobus, and it was OK. Not sure we'd rush back to do it again though. The staff at Nyungwe were great and went out of their way to be helpful. Our Covid tests hadn't come through from RBC and the park staff chased them so we could go on the trails. We booked online for the Canopy Walkway which was easy. We broke din person at Gisakura for the monkeys, but this simple meant that they booked online for us. Took a while!

The payment and registration process at the Uwinka reception center was quite smooth and timely. The briefing process was quite informative and my designated guide was extremely friendly. I had expected the wallk to be tideous as was mentioned during the briefing, but i was done in 40 minutes. The views of the lush canopy of trees was breathtaking and the air extremely fresh. I highly recommend the walk for anyone exploring Rwanda.

As part of a student travel group, we visited Nyungwe to learn more about the ecosystem, its conservation, and the animals here. Our entire group of 16 people did the trek in different groups. If you plan on doing the chimp trek, please be prepared and take time to do some hiking before the trip. My group, which left at 7 AM, only walked about half an hour before seeing chimps and were in the forest for maybe 2 hours. However, another group that left at 5 AM was in the forest for 7 hours total. That being said, the experience is unlike anything else. We got to see a small group of maybe 8 chimps for around an hour, with the alpha male sitting on the ground maybe 20 feet in front of us. Our guide was friendly and helpful, encouraging us to move to spots where we could see better and taking pictures for us so that we could focus on watching the chimps. The canopy walk was also great. While I am not a fan of heights, I could appreciate how stable it was and what an excellent view of the forest it provided us with.

We started our canopy walk at 8 o'clock, with our amazing guide Shandak. The canopy was beautiful, but it was our guide who made the trip unforgettable. He seemed to know everything about the plants, flowers and animals. He showed us different types of monkeys and squirrels on the way, he supported my mom on the slippery tracks (wear good shoes during rainy season) and he helped me cross the bridge and made my fear of hights dissappear!

We did the Canopy Trek one day and the Chimpanzee Trek is he next. Both were excellent. The guides were very good and the experiences were unforgettable. We also appreciated the traditional dancers after the Chimpanzee Trek. They were awesome. Nice touch.
