Sanje mangabey

One of the highlights of the Greentours trip to Tanzania is a chance to visit a habituated group of Sanje mangabeys as they go about there business, often feeding on the forest floor. This unique and endangered monkey is found only on the eastern slopes of the Udzungwa Mountains. Eleven other primates can be found in the Udzungwa Mountains, making it one of the most important sites for primate conservation in Africa. Tracking the habituated group can take from 30 minutes to four hours depending where they are but however long it takes it is always worth the effort.
