Welcome to the DRC Kahuzi Beiga National Park

Established in 1970, the Kahuzi Biega National Park became a World Heritage Site in 1980 and is the most biodiverse parks in the region, being home to the critically endangered eastern lowland gorilla (Gorilla beringei graueri). The park covers an area of 6000 km2 and protects a mountain forest in eastern DRC, which is the most densely populated region of the country. The park is named after the two spectacular extinct volcanoes which dominate its high altitude sector, Mount Kahuzi (3,308m) and Mount Biega (2,790m).

The critically endangered eastern lowland gorilla—also known as Grauer’s gorilla—is the largest of the four-gorilla subspecies. It is distinguished from other gorillas by its stocky body, large hands and short muzzle. 

This once-in-a-lifetime journey along the narrow jungle paths, will enable you to meet the gorillas. The length of the hike is dependant upon the location of the gorillas. It can take anything from a 20-minute walk to over an hour. Once you spot the gorillas you’ll have ample time to watch them feeding and playing with their young ones. An unforgettable experience.

  • Visit Bukavu, an integral stepping stone to adventure and wilderness in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo.
