Getting to Virunga

International Travel

Visitors to Virunga can land at Goma Airport. Ethiopian Airlines, JamboJet, and numerous domestic airlines land there. We advise you to book a night in a hotel in Goma on the day you arrive as flights are frequently delayed.

Landing in Kigali is also an option. The car journey to the Congolese border then takes around 3 and a half hours. Virunga National Park can’t arrange your transfer across Rwanda for you but our team would be happy to put you in touch with trusted companies that can organise a car for you.
