You will be greeted upon arrival at Kigali Airport and driven to the Rwanda – DRC border at Grande Barriére (La Corniche). You’ll be assisted to clear Customs and cross the border, entering the Democratic Republic of Congo. Proceed on to the city of Goma or Virunga National Park for your overnight at the hotel or lodge.
After an early breakfast comes the unforgettable adventure: hiking the active volcano called Nyiragongo. Your trek will take you through lush forests and barren lava fields, followed by a steep. During your stay in Congo, you will spend the night at the Nyiragongo Crater Cabanas, on the very rim of the volcano. Stunning views of Congo in both the daylight and the dark will make this an unbelievably rewarding experience. Take another look at the rim of the crater, high above the sweltering lava lake, as you settle down for the night at the Crater Banda’s.
CRATER BANDAS – Ready-made food and water are included in the rates below.
Things to bring on the Nyiragongo hike – sleeping bag, dry change of clothes, rain gear, good walking shoes, warm clothes (sweater, jacket) to wear on the rim, where it’s cold, sun cream, warm hat, torch, camera, and personal toiletries.
After breakfast, descend by 0700 hours, arriving back at the start of the trail before lunch. Continue back to the city of Goma for lunch. Thereafter, you will be transferred back to Rwanda, and then to Kigali Airport for departure.
