In East Africa, golden monkeys reside in Mgahinga National Park in Uganda or Volcanoes National Park where gold meets silver to give you an everlasting safari experience. Once in the park, Golden monkey trekking in Volcanoes National Park begins at 7:00am just like gorilla trekking and in Uganda, it starts at 8:00am. One is supposed to be at the park headquarters for briefing about the dos and don’ts while with golden monkeys and thereafter, they trek into the forest to look for them.
Unlike gorilla trekking that requires a maximum of 8 people per gorilla family, there is no limitation on the number of people for a given golden monkey family/community. A group of golden monkeys can thus be trekked by as many people as present on a given trekking day in either Rwanda or Uganda.
Once you have found the golden monkeys, you will be allowed just one hour to observe their behavior, take some selfies and then return back to your lodge.
