Goma City Tour
Goma is the capital city of the North Kivu province. It is located on the northern shore of Lake Kivu, next to the Rwandan city of Gisenyi. On the one hand, the recent history of Goma has been dominated by the eruption of Nyiragongo volcano in 2002 and the lava that buried most of the town’s streets, houses and covered over the northern 1 km of the 3-kilometre (10,000 ft) runway of Goma International Airport. On the other hand Goma has suffered the tragic consequences of the Rwandan Genocide of 1994: the First and Second Congo Wars, which the aftermaths are still felt today in the city ans its surroundings.
This tour is an opportunity to visit many attractive sites such as local markets, museums, the lava that burnt the town in 2002, city monuments, lake Kivu, the green lake, Buhimba landscapes, Goma harbour, fishing sites (Nzulo, Bulengo), hotels and restaurants, all the places that make Goma such a fascinating tourist city to explore. It is also an occasion to interact with locals and learn about their history, their life. At the end of the tour, you’ll surely enjoy the experience and be amazed by the resilience capacity of the locals.
