Day 2: Golden Monkey trekking in Volcanoes national park

After breakfast, your driver guide will transfer you to the briefing area at the park. The ranger guide allocated to your group will brief you about your time in the forest in search of these golden monkeys.

Golden monkeys reside in the Virunga regions of Uganda, Rwanda and DR Congo. They are very active, often found foraging for food at the time of your visit this implies that you will follow them as they feed. Sometimes they are seen getting into the surrounding gardens for potatoes but their all time delicacy is bamboo shoots.
