Volcanoes National Park

After breakfast you will drive to Volcanoes National Park. Upon arrival you will take part in a presentation on The Golden Monkey and a briefing by the Volcanoes National Park guides. We encourage trekkers to be physically fit and healthy. It is also important to wear good hiking boots, long trousers and gloves for protection against stinging nettles. You should bring snacks and sufficient drinking water as the trek is strenuous and the rainforest gets hot and humid during the day. You will spend one hour with the Golden Monkeys, but it is an hour you will never forget! After the visit, you will return to your hotel for lunch and later enjoy dinner and your overnight stay.
