Other animals found in this park are Chimpanzees, Monkeys, Antelopes, Forest Elephants, etc. There are also different types of birds. Visitors can also climb to the summit of Mount Kahuzi (3,308m), Mount Biega (3,000m), or Mount Bugulumiza (2,400m), which takes three to four hours.
Visit three magnificent waterfalls (Tshibati Waterfalls Trail), and grab the chance for a dip in a plunge pool. On the outskirts of the park, there is also a pygmy village that you can visit. After the visit in Kahuzi Biega National Park, you can also go and see orphaned primates, different kinds of baboons, monkeys and snakes found in Lwiro sanctuary.
