Goma is a city in the eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo. It is located on the northern shore of Lake Kivu, next to the Rwandan city of Gisenyi.

Goma lies only 13 to 18 km due south of the crater of the active Nyiragongo Volcano. You might find a couple of things to do, but enjoy the daily life of the Goma people and the lava that are everywhere in the streets and around the houses. You will see colorful painted beauty shops and sun flowers in the lava around some of the houses.
