The Democratic Republic (DR) of the Congo, which neighbors the Republic of Congo (a separate nation) is at the very heart of Africa.

It is the second-largest nation on the continent and is mostly landlocked, though a small coastal region along the Atlantic Ocean is available. It is a land that offers many natural wonders that invite one and all to go exploring.

That journey often begins with Mount Nyiragongo. It is an active volcano that stands tall at 3470m. It is part of the Albertine Rift and is located within Virunga National Park. The park is one of the earliest world heritage sites, designated in 1979, and you’ll find traditional camps with thatched huts providing a base of operations to explore and find local mountain gorillas.

Lake Kivu is another exciting opportunity that DR Congo offers to visitors. It is one of the Great Lakes in Africa and fisheries are quite abundant on its fresh waters. Plan your stay in Goma to access these natural wonders and enjoy the lakeside wharves, with the longest stretching out 80m.

You’ll have opportunities to explore the Congo River during your stay as well. It is the largest river in this portion of the continent and guided tours are available to help you explore it in whatever way suits you the best.

Local nightlife options are available in some cities, ranging from local bars to large discos.

One thing is for certain: traveling to DR Congo means more than a holiday in an exotic location. It is a chance to experience another part of the world to shape one’s own personal experiences. In that light, a holiday here can really be a life-changing opportunity.
