Welcome to Mount Nyiragongo Volcano Guide

Tchegera Island Tented Camp

There are not many outdoor pleasures greater in Congo than sitting around a campfire on a clear evening with the silence broken only by the sounds of the waves breaking on the shores of Lake Kivu.

Tchegera Island Camp is the perfect way to escape the hustle and bustle of Goma or to relax after climbing Nyiragongo Volcano. Situated on the northern shore of Lake Kivu, Tchegera Camp offers spectacular views of the lake and the four volcanoes in the area.

On clear nights, Nyiragongo and Nyamuragira Volcano add to the drama by turning the night sky red with their glowing lava. There is also an abundance of bird life on the island, including African eagles, cormorants, herons and gulls. Whether one chooses to relax on the beach or explore other parts of the island in a sea kayak or by paddle board, Tchegera is the perfect place for rest and relaxation.
