Rwanda Colobus Monkey Trekking

Colobus monkey trekking happens in Nyungwe national park in southern Rwanda which is about 5 hours drive from the capital, Kigali. The park has many individuals and often you can find a group of over 400 individual while on this trek. Just like the other primates, it is best to track them in morning when they are active feeding and grooming before they rest. There is a semi habituated group in Nyungwe forest which makes the experience even more intriguing as you find them actively moving in the forest. The Colobus monkeys are more active than the chimpanzees keeping you entertained as you watch them and because they are many in number, you will have much more photographic opportunities.

The trekking starts with a briefing from the park office in Uwinka where your driver guide will transfer you to. After learning about the expectations while in the forest, you will be led into the forest with the ranger guides to start the experience. You are allowed one hour with the Colobus monkeys when you sight them after which you start the trek out of the forest.
