You will arrive at the Mutanda Lake Resort in time for lunch. In the afternoon – one can spend time on the terrace, jutting out onto the incredibly scenic landscape of Lake Mutanda with the volcanoes in the background. The next day, you will visit Mgahinga National Park to see the golden monkeys. This rare species is endangered and lives in the bamboo vegetation towards the base of the volcanoes.
