About golden monkey tracking

These striking primates are a treat for the eyes. With their bright orange fur contrasting the green rainforests of the Virunga Mountains, it's a photographer’s dream! Visitors meet with their guides at Volcanoes National Park’s Kinigi Headquarters, and the visit is done once per day; time will be allocated once booked.

Like their neighbor’s gorillas, the Golden monkey can be found in very few places outside of Volcanoes National Park, and their rich colors, energetic demeanor, and sizeable troupes of up to 30 individuals are truly a sight to behold. The gorillas may be what brought you to Rwanda, but it would be an absolute shame to leave without seeing any of the wonderful creatures they share a home with.
