Start your trip with heading straight into Virunga National Park, a place of ethereal swirling mists and steamy green forests and, of course, home to the magnificent mountain gorilla. Next: hike to the top of Mount Nyiragongo, DRC’s towering volcanic massif, and set up camp on the edge of the world overlooking the fiery red lava lake. End your DRC adventure with a few days on the edge of Lake Kivu. Swim in croc-free clear waters, kayak or just be – you may just need it after all that adventure.
