Golden Monkeys

Another early start, picked up at 0630 again for a journey to the Volcano national park headquarters for a briefing before setting off on a trek to see the Golden Monkeys. Golden Monkeys are one of the most endangered species in Africa and only exist around these volcanoes bordering Rwanda, Uganda and the Republic of Congo.

They inhabit the forests in the lower areas so the trek was much easier and was probably only about 4 miles in total. Once we reached the area where they were it was quite difficult to see them though once they realised we were not a threat they became more relaxed easier to get close to.

Packing tonight as we are out on a gorilla trek again tomorrow then heading back to the airport at Kigali for my flight home tomorrow night.
