2 days golden monkey tracking in the volcanoes Rwanda.
Day 1 – Travel to Ruhengeri.
7:00am, Pick up from your place (hotel or residence) in Kigali is at 8:00am. Drive northwards, across the sprawling hills, for about two and half hours. Get to Musanze District and check in at your lodge outside the park. Relax away the day at the lodge whilst enjoying the magnificent views of the mountain scenery and cool weather. You shall have all meals and overnight at the lodge.
Day 2 – Golden Monkey tracking – return to Kigali.
5:30am, Wake up for early breakfast at about 6:30am, thereafter transfer to the Kinigi park headquarters. Do not forget to carry a raincoat and drinking water. Briefing by the ranger guides starts at 7:30am ending at 8:00am when you then transfer to the base of the volcano and starting point of the trek in the park.
Treks to find Golden Monkeys are relatively easy and faster since the monkeys keep in the lower bamboo zones of the Volcano. Find them and follow them though the forest for no more than an hour. The habituated Golden Monkeys are not shy at all, so expect a pretty closer encounter and excellent photos. Flush is permitted and the monkeys seem to love it. After the one hour return to the starting point to meet your driver guide and depart for Kigali City.
