Kahuzi Biega national park covers several varieties of the African wildlife, having take most favour time to explore the national park to spot various safari activities in Congo that included the hiking trails to the mountains & Tea plantations. I have visited the park two month ago and it was a pleasure to see Gorilla for my first time. The security situation is becoming better as rebellions are leaving the park and local population have now noticed the importance of the forest.
