If you are visiting Mgahinga National Park or Volcanoes National Park (in Rwanda), then the chance to track golden monkeys should not be missed. These beautiful primates live in dense bamboo forest areas of the Virunga Mountains, and group size varies up to around 60 animals. Tracking groups are limited in size to 6 people in total, and permits need to be arranged in advance (so let us know if you are interested). Much like gorilla and chimpanzee tracking, trackers set off in the morning and around one hour is spent with the monkeys once they have been located. It is possible to spend longer with the monkeys by taking part in a golden monkey habituation experience which lasts up to four hours accompanied by guides and researchers. This is only available at Mgahinga.
