On Our short safari ‘Earth’s Crust’, we take you directly to Mt. Nyiragongo. The 3470 meters high volcano is part of the Virunga massif and very well known for its permanent lava lake, the largest in the whole world! When Nyiragongo erupted back in 2002, half a million inhabitants of Goma and the surrounding areas had to be evacuated, 147 died. Nyiragongo’s last eruption was in 2009 and You can still experience the power of the magma in certain ways. Depending on the day, the level of the lava can rise or go down, cracks on the side of the mountain may open and release hot lava while We are on Our trip!
