Kenya Black and White Colobus Monkeys

You are Here: › Black and White Colobus Monkeys

The Kenya Black and White Colobus Monkeys also known as the Guereza is a very distinctive and beautiful monkey with its jet black coat and flowing white mantle.

They live mostly high in the forest canopy and are difficult to get a close look at. We have mostly seen them only in fleeting glimpses as they moved through the tops of trees.

However Mountain Lodge on Mount Kenya can be a good spot to get a closer look as the local troop occasionally comes through the lodge grounds at sunset, on route to their sleeping areas. The roof top look out area is excellent for a tree-top view of the troop. They are, however, shy and wary of humans.
