5 October 2009 - Jozani Forest (Jozani-Chwaka Bay National Park), Zanzibar, Tanzania.

Sykes' Monkey or White-throated Monkey / Witkeelmeerkat (Cercopithecus albogularis), subspecies: Zanzibar Sykes' Monkey / Zanzibar Witkeelmeerkat (Cercopithecus albogularis albogularis).

It's hard to approach these monkeys. Usually they run off if you come closer than 10 to 20 meters. With patience and carefully not direct approaching (parallel walking) I managed to get up to 1.5 meter from this one.

Subspecies Zanzibar Sykes' Monkey is also known as Cercopithecus mitis albogularis.
