  2. While gorilla trekking may be the park’s most popular attraction, visitors may hike Mount Kahuzi (3308 m), one of the two dormant volcanoes which are located within the park.
    When hiking Mount Kahuzi, trekkers go through bamboo forest and sub-alpine vegetation, which harbor various animals, providing trekkers a chance to encounter animals such as owl-faced monkeys and a variety of birds.
    The summit of Mount Kahuzi (3308 m) offers great views of Bukavu and Lake Kivu. The ascent takes 4 hours, the descent is approximately 3 hours.

    The summit of Mount Bugulumiza (2400 m) is easily accessible via a 6 km trail from Tshivanga Visitor Centre and takes about 3 hours round-trip. The summit offers great views of Lake Kivu, Mounts Kahuzi and Biega along with the surrounding forest landscape.

    Visitors may also go for a nature walk in the park, enjoy different vegetation types and wildlife, hear sweet sounds of birds singing up in the trees and enjoy fresh air which freshens the mind. Or take the Tshibati Waterfalls trail which has three magnificent waterfalls located near the Lwiro Primate Rehabilitation Centre.
