I could feel the bridge shake, the ropes on the sides appeared so lose and any thing was possible. I could not move any more and at that point, i had more fear than excitement it had changed from famous canopy walk to deadly crazy walk. But with Augustine’s moral support we made it through.
When I was told that I was going back to Rwanda and this time to experience the great canopy walk, I had more than butterflies in my stomach, I heard birds sing and saw a few dance. As I packed my bags a smile was glued on this face. We set off at 10am and reached Kigali at 9pm after enjoying a stop at the equator and lunch in mbarara.
We got checked into our hotel at nyabugogo. This place was price friendly since we were traveling as students. The facilities in this side of Kigali can go to aslow as 15dollars per night. We had breakfast and headed to the southern province of Rwanda were nyungwe National Park is located. Due to the highly developed infrastructure in form of roads, the 4 hours drive was bareable with beautuful scenaries blowing our minds away. We had lunch in a small town in the south as we entered the region.
A few things to note.
There are very many shape corners since Rwanda is the land of thousands hills. This makes some journeys longer since one has to drive with care.
Drivers keep right in Rwanda
Rwanda is 1 hour behind of Uganda.
Rwanda is an eco tourism destination.
The forest Is very big and beautiful.
And showcases nature at its purest.
It took us 2 more hours to get to the canopy walk site. While here, we got a guide and brief introduction of the walk, duration and expectations. Our guide Augustine told us about the tree species in the forest as we walked to the canopy site. On arrival, we realized that the canopy walk had 3 parts and the second was the longest and most beautiful as it gave us an eagles view of the forest. It was scary at one point but worth every second as it exposed us to breath taking views.
It was a great experience with #blictours ug.
