After the chimp tracking you can relax at the hotel or choose an optional activity like the canopy walk on your third day of 8 day Rwanda Adventure Tour. In the afternoon, go for East Africa’s only canopy walk. This walk takes place above a deep gorge cutting across the massive forest. Lasting about 1½ hours, the walk takes you through some beautiful foliage and animal habitats. En route you will have the chance to spot blue monkeys and unique birds that dwell in the upper levels of the forest canopy.
