3 Days Mount Nyiragongo Hiking In Congo
Day 1: Pickup – Kigali City Tour – Transfer from Kigali to Congo
Lunch will be served either at a hotel restaurant close to the border crossing or along Lake Kivu. Following lunch, you will visit the border crossing points to clear immigration. Your Congo visa should already be in the system, but you’ll also need a passport and a yellow fever card to travel into the country. When your paperwork has been verified, travel over to the Congo side where a staff from Virunga National Park will be waiting to take you to your lodge.
Dinner and overnight will be spent at Mikeno Lodge’s Kibumba Tented Camp and Bukima Tented Camp, respectively (Luxury).
Day 2: Nyiragongo Hike – Observing the Lava Lake
The lower slopes of the volcano are covered in a lush, green jungle as you approach it. Take advantage of the fact that unique plants, small primates, birds, and mammals live in these woodlands. Watch out for chimpanzees, monkeys, and antelopes, specifically.
Day 3: Descend the Nyiragongo volcano and head back to Kigali.
It’s time to head off after viewing the volcano and spending the night with other trekkers. Get up early and eat the breakfast that the porters have prepared. At 8 am, the volcano’s descent begins. This is your chance to enjoy uninterrupted views of the stunning scenery in Virunga National Park if you’ve never had the chance to do so because you were too exhausted. You will be taken to the border crossing between Congo and Rwanda once you arrive at the base. You will be interacting with Rwandan officials this time. They will charge you $30 for a second Rwanda visa so that you can return. From the Rwandan side, our office guide will be ready to begin the trip to Kigali.
