The Maiko-Tayna-Kahuzi-Biega landscape, one of the largest of CARPE’s nine landscapes, includes a cluster of three major protected areas in eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo. Covering more than 10 million hectares – about the size of Virginia – the landscape extends from the mountainous east along the rim of the Albertine Rift near the borders of Rwanda and Burundi down to the flat lowlands near the Congo River more than 200 kilometers to the west and nearly 3,000 meters lower in elevation.
