Flights in Congo
International Travel: If you are traveling from outside the Democratic Republic of the Congo, you would need to book a flight to an international airport in the region. The most common point of entry is Kinshasa’s N’Djili International Airport (FIH), which has connections to various international destinations.
Domestic Travel: From Kinshasa, you would need to take a domestic flight to Goma. Goma’s airport, Goma International Airport (GOM), receives domestic flights from Kinshasa and other major cities in the country.
The most recommended airline is the Ethiopian airline and we advise travelers to avoid domestic flights in Congo as they are unreliable and anything can change and happen anytime ! Therefore its advisable once one wants a trip to Mount Nyiragongo to book at some time back in order to meet travel through Ethiopian Airways.
Road Transport in Congo
Once you arrive in Goma, you would need to arrange ground transportation to reach the starting point of the Nyiragongo hike. This can be done through local tour operators or guides who organize trips to the volcano. They can arrange transportation from Goma to the starting point of the trek, which is usually at the Kibati Ranger Station. We do own the fleets and rarely do we outsource from car rental companies in Congo like the oldest Car hire company called Car rental Congo Sarl that has been our partner for special transportation in Virunga
