Getting to The Kahuzi-Biega National Park Congo – How to The Kahuzi-Biega National Park Congo

KBNP is located 40 km west of Bukavu town. It takes approximately 1-2 hours to drive from Bukavu to the entrance of the park depending on traffic. Follow the road heading towards Kavumu Airport and turn left at the intersection in the town of Miti. Keep driving straight until you reach the Tschivanga visitor Centre.

The easiest way to get around is by using one of the several tour operators currently offering the Kahuzi-Biega National Park. However, should you wish to organize transport yourself, a couple of options exist.

By Road; You can reach Bukavu by bus or by car from Rwanda via the Cyangungu border, from Burundi via the Uvira border, and from Goma via the road along Lake Kivu.

By Boat; Several operators travel daily between Goma and Bukavu, with tickets for rapid boats (2 hours) costing on average USD 50 and slower but larger boats (6 hours) are costing between USD 8-25. Tickets can be bought at the ports in Goma and Bukavu and it is recommended that you get these at least one day in advance.

By Air; The nearest international airports are in Goma (2 hours by boat), Bujumbura, Burundi (3 hours by road) and Kigali, Rwanda (6 hours by road). It is also possible to fly to Entebbe Airport in Uganda, which is another 9 hours by road from Kigali. Read More
