In southwestern Rwanda, a tract of unspoiled mountain rain forest that's home to chimpanzees and a dozen other primates—not to mention hundreds of species of birds—became Nyungwe National Park in 2005. Recently a canopy walkway was built to give park visitors a thrilling perspective on a forested canyon.

Nyungwe Forest National Park is one of our must-see places for 2014. See the Best Trips list >>
