Have breakfast and then check out of the lodge to transfer to the park offices for briefing. The briefing is followed by the trekking adventure in the forest. The Golden Monkey tracking exercise is almost similar to gorilla trekking encounters in terms of permit bookings, road transfers, pre-tracking briefing, hiking up to meeting them plus time spend with them. Golden monkey trips entail permit booking, driving to the park, understanding the trekking guidelines, walking in the jungle to meet the monkeys, spending 1 hour with the jolly primates and returning from the forest to drive back to Kigali. After seeing the monkeys in their natural dwelling forest, transfer to the nearby hotel or lodge for lunch and then driving back to Kigali where you will arrive in the evening. This marks the end of the 2 day Kigali city tour and Golden monkey tracking in Rwanda.
