The 2 day Ruhondo Lake and Golden Monkeys Adventure will take you on an adventure through the Kalisimbi crater lake and descend down the mountain through tropical forest to see golden monkeys. Starting at 7am, you will begin your scenic drive towards Lake Bulera ending at where the tour begins. You will then hike up the volcanic rim and enjoy a scenic view of the lake and surrounding mountains before descending down into the crater.
Golden monkeys are known to have unique characters and are a rare species that are endangered at the moment and they are currently found in the Virunga Mountains in Rwanda. They are easily recognized due to the yellow patches that can be seen all over their bodies. The Golden monkeys are also known as ‘the Old world monkey’ and the only way to separate these primates from others is by their noses. There is a unique character about the golden monkeys and that is most of the monkeys have their nostrils pointing to the sides but if you look closely at the golden monkeys, their nostrils face upwards.
Timing is for guidance and may slightly vary along the tour:
