This expedition to Nyiragongo Volcano has been rated as one of the best volcano tours in Africa. The tour will visit the impressive Virunga mountain range, and climb to the summit of Nyiragongo volcano.
The expedition will set up camp on the summit crater, and make observations of the lava lake (if present). Lava lakes are regularly present in the craters. In 2002 Nyiragongo volcano erupted, and lava flowed through the city of Goma. This was resulted in the evacuation of 500,000 people.
Nyiragongo is one of the world's most fascinating volcanoes. It is famous for the lava lakes which regularly appear in the summit crater.
SAFETY NOTE: Volcanic activity can change without warning. In the interests of safety, trip details may change at short notice due to volcanic activity, weather, or request from local authorities. Participants need to arrange their own visas for Kenya, Rwanda, and Democratic Republic of Congo.
