Visit the delights of Congo:
Congo is the 2ndbiggest and one of the most beautiful countries in Africa, and Virunga is its jewel, the oldest national park on the continent. Established in 1925 by King Albert I of Belgium, it has the greatest biological diversity of any national park in the world – its 3,000 square miles contain all manner of landscapes and wildlife, including savannah, lakes, mountains, rainforest, 703 recorded bird species and two seriously active volcanoes.
Mount Nyiragongo is a beautiful active stratovolcano with an elevation of 3,470 m in the Virunga Mountains associated with the Albertine Rift. The hiking starts from around 1,900 m elevation. It is located inside Virunga National Park, in the DRC, about 20 km north of the town of Goma and Lake Kivu and just west of the border with Rwanda. The main crater is about 2 km wide and contains a lava lake. The volcano’s forested lower slopes are home to a variety of animals, including chimpanzees, monkeys, and bushbuck. Nyiragongo’s summit rim is largely devoid of vegetation and is frequently dusted with snow.
Not much is known about how long the volcano has been erupting, but since 1882, it has erupted at least 34 times. Nyiragongo's lava flows may race downhill at up to 100 km/h.
It is advisable to bring good hiking shoes and warm clothes.
