Small but great-the golden monkey weighs  about 10-25 pounds and has a golden body, cheeks and tail  and has complementary black limbs, crown and tail-end. Miniature is presently known about the environmental requirements of the golden monkey, and the subspecies populaces have never been determined.  Living in the supercilious montane Virungas forests with its great ape relatives, this primate faces some of the same threats as gorillas, including snares set for small antelopes, human encroachment and people entering their habitat to collect wood. Dinner and overnight at your lodge

    Day 4: OPTIONAL GOLDEN MONKEY TREK OR DIAN FOSSEY OR TRANSFER TO KIGALI

    One this day before you head to Kigali, you can go Golden monkey tracking if it wasn’t done the day before or visit the Diane Fossey grave. The famous American Gorillas research established the Karisoke Research Center in Rwanda’s Virungas Mountains in 1967, to guard and study the endangered mountain gorillas. While advocating for protection of the mountain gorillas, she was murdered by an unknown poacher. Although Fossey ’s life was cut short, her work has inexorably continued through the Karisoke Research Center and developed into conservation efforts for other wildlife and programs for people who live near the few left mountain gorillas. The Karisoke Research Center has brought international awareness and foundation to the predicament of the mountain gorilla and linked local communities with gorilla conservation through partnerships, education, and health and development projects. Scientist and researcher still have access to a 40-year database of information about gorilla life, conduct, locale and protection, one of the longest-running primate studies. Have lunch and head to the airport reaching in time for the departure flight.
