Established in 1970, Kahuzi-Biega National Park is located in the Congolese eastern border spreading from the Congo River basin near Itebero-Utu, 50km northwest of Bukavu boarder town, and very close to Rwanda and Burundi. It is set out in both mountainous and lowland terrain within the Albertine Rift. The park’s western lowland portion is dominated by lush equatorial forest while the eastern part provides one of the peculiar sites in sub-Saharan Africa which displays all stages of low to highland transition. This varied habitat is translated to a wealthy biodiversity, making Kahuzi-Biega the second most important region for both endangered species – lowland and mountain gorillas and in terms of specific diversity among which the stars of the show are the eastern lowland gorillas. This rare and endangered species finds here its biggest refuge in Africa and world over.
