Kahuzi-Biega National Park, DRC 

The Park is named after Mt. Kahuzi and Mt. Biega which are located in South Kivu Province, in the eastern part of the Democratic Republic of Congo.

It spreads from the Congo River basin near Itebero-Utu to the northwest of Bukavu, and is very near to the borders with Rwanda and Burundi.

In 1937, for the protection of the Eastern Lowland Gorillas, the Belgian colonial administration created the Zoological Reserve of Mt. Kahuzi which covered an area of 750 sq. km.
