Lonely Planet is one of the largest travel guide book publisher, which has sold over 120 million books since inception.
Nyungwe Canopy Walkway came top of Lonely Planet’s 11 best forest canopy walkways in the world rankings thanks to its exhilarating experience that offers travellers, “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 compilation of the best Canopy Walkways in the world comes as appreciation for the vital role the Earth’s forests play in keeping the planet and how canopies give travellers a new perspective on the destinations they visit, bringing people eye-level with birds and other wildlife in an ecofriendly way.
