Kibira National Park

The Kibira National Park is in the north-west of Burundi on the Congo-Nile ridge. The park covers an area of 40 900 ha. It is an altitude rainforest, which enjoys, on the highest peaks, rainfall conditions (1800 to 2000 mm) allowing significant fauna and plant development. The flora is diversified with some rare plants in certains areas. The fauna is very rich and varied with 300 kinds of birds. Some primates such as baboons and chimpanzees are found in the park although they represent an endangered species and need increased protection. The top of the ridge allows panoramic views of the central plateaus but also the plains of the Imbo. Hiking, trekking, camping and photography can be done in the forest.
