Kahuzi Biega Welcomes Gorillas to the Bamboo Forest

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This time of year is the rainy season in Kahuzi Biega National Park. It coincides with the movements of Eastern lowland gorillas to the bamboo forest areas. Bamboo shoots are the preferred food for lowland gorillas together with myrianthus, a local fruit growing within the park.

November to December is a special time, as visitors can see the whole family of gorillas together eating bamboo shoots. At other times of the year the family is more widely dispersed in search of food. Added to this the bamboo forest is located close to the main of the park. This means that it you can currently reach the gorilla family after walking for only 5-20 minutes.

Take advantage of this special time of year and come and visit the gorillas at Kahuzi Biega National Park.
