Mgahinga Gorilla National Park is a trivial park compacted with several activities of which Golden Monkey Trekking is one of them for years.Well Golden Monkeys are not as famous and popular as the gentle giants (mountain Gorillas) & the Chimpanzees of Uganda but then they are all threatened (endangered species). In the shadows of the Virunga Volcanoes there resides approximately 4000 Golden Monkeys in numbers, there is no concrete statistics so far but it is known that these Golden Monkeys are not procreating at the speed which will lead to an upsurge in their populace. These endangered species stay in the Bamboo Forest zones of the Virunga Volcanoes & you have got to be totally fit to hike up to their place of stay/territory which is the most satisfying involvement. One of the families that has been familiarized which means that they are now used to human beings without rushing off into the forest when humans advance.


You can either spend 4 hrs in the morning or in the afternoon, will depend where you will be directed to, in the Bamboo forest by a guide. Remember that the size of your Golden Monkey Habituation group should contain only 6 members. Compared to the number /size of those who get involved in Gorilla Habituation Experience (where 8 members can tour a Gorilla group each day), this size is smaller. Golden Monkey Habituation permit costs $100, Park Entrance goes for $40, which is a lot less either chimpanzee habituation or gorilla tracking making it a most affordable experience and involves the Park Entrance fee. It is fine to dress right for this Golden Monkey Habituation Experience, light-hiking boots, jeans, long-sleeved shirt, hat, rain-jacket, day pack, 1 litre of water, something to eat, and of course your camera and binoculars to be able to take photos. This Golden Monkey experience activity can be joined with other activities at Mgahinga Gorilla Park like the incredible Gorilla Tracking, volcano climbing, nature walks, and of course the communication with the Batwa society- the earliest people of the forest. Relish your 4 hrs viewing the remarkable Golden Monkeys at Mgahinga Gorilla National Park in Uganda.
