Goma is considered the capital of the Northern Kivu province and one of the largest after Kinshasa. Goma is a very busy city because it is a major trading route for goods going to Congo. It also hosts a large number of UN and other international humanitarian organizations. Goma is just a few minutes' drive from Virunga National Park hence offering countless opportunities for those interested in nature and Wildlife.

The areas around Goma have striking and natural scenery consisting of forests, hills, and mountains. Its location outside the Virunga National Park has made it a tourist hub in East Africa. A key feature is the majestic Nyiragongo Volcano.

Before going to Goma or the Eastern part of DR Congo, it is important to note that it is not an ordinary tourism destination. The area is blessed with pristine wilderness, landscape, and wildlife but has had a history of civil unrest and conflict. Although the security situation has normalized and the Virunga National Park opened, you need to know what you might be getting into.

It is important to remain cautious and know the latest security updates especially if you are planning to visit the interior or rural areas. It is also important to know that many of the local people in Goma have had to endure suffering, war, and even the recent Ebola crisis which is now under control. The result of all these challenges is tighter border controls and an unusually high number of armed security personnel to protect civilians and tourists.
