Golden Monkeys may not be the most well-known primates, but they are certainly one of the most enjoyable primates to encounter on your Uganda safari. These little creatures are worth visiting on your safari Uganda. These are small curious monkeys, golden in color and just like other primates, they love to scamper around the trees.
Golden monkeys are estimated to be 3000-4000 individuals living in the bamboo forests of the Virunga Volcanoes. Researchers claim that they are still very much endangered as they face the same difficulties as their cousins the Mountain Gorillas found in Uganda, Rwanda and Congo. On your East Africa safari tour, you can only see these golden monkeys in Mgahinga Gorilla National Park; “Where Silver meets Gold”. It is the only park in the world where you can do a Uganda gorilla trekking safari and a golden monkey trekking safari Uganda. Other golden monkeys are found in Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda.
