Nyiragongo's lava lake
After a pause of 2 years, Congo's Virunga National Park opens again this month. The Virunga National Park, founded in 1925, is Africa's oldest and one oldest national park and home to some of the last surviving mountain gorillas, but also two of the world's most interesting and most active volcanoes, Nyiragongo and Nyamuragira.
We all hope that the situation continues to stabilize and we can again offer expeditions to these volcanoes
, probably already this summer (planned for July 2014). Stay tuned with us if you're interested in visiting!
