Golden Monkey Tracking

Tracking the golden monkeys is quite an amazing thing to do in the Virunga. The golden monkey (Cercopithecus Mitis Kandti) is an endemic primate species that only lives in the forests of Virunga Mountains. Also known as the “Blue Monkey” the golden monkey is endemic to the high altitude forests of the Virunga. These beautiful looking monkeys are playful and inquisitive and often spend their time leaping from bamboo branches or frolicking on the forest floor.

Golden monkey tracking is conducted in only two national parks; Volcanoes National Park and the Mgahinga Gorilla National Park.

A guided walk is conducted by knowledgeable guides within both parks and they will lead you into the forest to search for these primates.
