Golden Monkey Tracking

This morning, after breakfast, you will head to the park headquarters where you will be briefed by the park guide. You will then start the golden monkey trekking activity. You will also expect to see various forest birds that live in the forest. Accompanied by Uganda Wildlife Authority guides we will trek onto the lower slopes of the dormant volcano Mgahinga, which translates as a pile of volcanic stones. After around two hours we will reach the bamboo zone where we hope to find the Golden Monkeys, an endangered species that is only found in this remote part of Africa. Our permits will allow us to spend an hour in the company of these fascinating animals as they play and eat in the branches above us.
