African Volcano Expedition 2018:
D.R Congo & Rwanda
The adventure will take our team to the summit of five towering volcanoes in the Democratic Republic of Congo & Rwanda. We will trek through jungles, and along trails of hardened lava, explore the otherworldly city of Goma, gaze down into the largest lava lake in the world, and witness man’s closest, but most endangered relative in the wild: the mountain gorilla. For the fit and intrepid adventurer, this will be an expedition like no other.
