Mgahinga Gorilla National Park
Golden monkeys live in Uganda and Rwanda in east Africa and if one is interested in tracking them, will have to go to either Mgahinga Gorilla National park in Uganda or volcanoes National park in Rwanda where gold meets silver offering you an exciting life time Safari experience here, we will show the Golden monkey tracking FAQ for those interested in trekking them can have a hint of what to expect.
On the Golden monkey FAQ
Is at what time does Golden Monkey Safari begin trekking in volcanoes National park Rwanda starts at 7:00 am just like Gorilla tracking and in Uganda trekking starts at 8:00 am. Trekkers are expected to be at the park headquarters for briefing and guidance about the Dos and Don’ts while with Golden monkeys and then trek into the bamboo forest to look out for them.
Time with the Golden monkeys
Golden monkey just like Gorilla tracking, the visit is done a one-hour activity, the moment you find the Golden monkeys, the clock will count for you an hour as you observe their way of life, the behavior, you take photographs and then you’ll head back to your lodge
Not like gorilla tracking which requires a maximum of eight people per Gorilla family, there is no limit on the number of people for a given Golden monkey family. A Golden monkey family can therefore be trekked by as many people as they are on many trekking days in both Uganda and Rwanda.
Golden monkey permits
This is another FAQ which is a piece of a permit.
In Rwanda (volcanoes national park) a Golden monkey permit is at USD 100 per person per trek, the park entry fee services of a ranger guide, and an hour with habituated Golden monkey.
In Uganda, it is USD 50 (Mgahinga Gorilla National park) and this excludes the park entry fee though it includes services of a ranger guide and spending an hour with the habituated Golden monkeys
The Golden monkey tracking permits can be booked earlier or on last minute booking since there is no limit on the people to trek them and the age limit for the interested trekkers of Golden monkeys is 12 years though it is not so strict as Gorilla trekking.
