To assist exploring the DR Congo, Congo Local Guides (CLGs) designed the Walking Goma City Tour to help you discover the citys’ diversity. The capital city of North Kivu province, Goma, is located on the north shore of Lake Kivu offering you both waters and land experience. Virunga Park and Nyiragongo Gorilla family, Lake Kivu islands (Idjwi, Tchegera…) are among bucket list items to tick while in Goma. Besides, the history of repeated wars in the region sandwiched in the silent monster, Nyiragongo volcano, will help you connect with the locals.
How to reach Goma ?
Goma is among the most accessible cities in the Congo. In the past, it was easy to access Goma from Kigali, Rwanda (3 to 5 hours’ drive) but today with Goma Airport open to international flights, it’s easy to land directly in Goma. However, should you decide to come from Kigali, CLGs organises a pick-up in Kigali or Gisenyi, Rwanda.
Goma is not exactly everybody’s destination but if you happen to visit Rwanda, L. Kivu is likely to be in your bucket list and fortunately, Goma neighbours the lake and thus, your love for nature will end up pushing you to the other side of the border, DRC. Many people come for cheap gorilla trekking in Virunga National park or for trekking the Nyiragongo Volcano and leave as quickly as possible back to Rwanda. Now, can be you too. To well explore, discover and have fun in African cities you will need well-experienced local company, and that company is the CLGs. This package securely and safely take you to all corners of the town from the south to the north (Port de Goma, Turunga) and from the East to west (Grande Bariere, NDOSHO quarter).
