If you want to save money on your accommodations, bundle your hotel and flights. There are some terrific deals available with our Democratic Republic of the Congo Vacation Packages. Whether you’re looking to book multiple flights or stay at the fanciest hotel, you’ll find discounted travel arrangements within your budget right here.
Day 1: Fly into Goma International Airport to start your adventure. The lakeside city of Goma sits on the border of Rwanda and is a great base from which to explore some of the country’s best sights.
Day 2-3: Trek the active volcano, Nyiragongo. This dramatic peak is home to one of the world’s only active lava lakes and offers incredible views of the surrounding landscape. It can be climbed on a thrilling two-day expedition.
Day 4-5: Search for critically endangered mountain gorillas in Virunga National Park. One of the most biologically diverse areas on the planet, it’s also home to chimpanzees, giraffes and buffaloes. Many visitors base themselves in Goma and do day trips into the park — but make sure you have a knowledgeable guide and the right equipment.
Join the festivities of Feux de Brazza, a popular international festival of traditional music that takes place in Brazzaville, on the right bank of the majestic River Congo. It’s held every two years and aims to preserve Africa’s culture of music and dance.
