We had an excellent trip to Nyiragongo with Virunga Amani Tours. Jean Bosco is incredibly responsive and helpful, checking in regularly and providing all necessary information in order to prepare before arrival. He helped us with sorting out tourist visas, working our way through immigration at the border, and getting from Rubavu, Rwanda, through Goma into the base camp as well. The food his chef Pilote prepared, despite being prepared in quite basic conditions, was delicious, and he was able to accommodate specific dietary requirements. Jean Bosco was also kind enough to show us around Goma after the trek, including a stop at a local bar for some drinks. Overall the tour was very smooth and enjoyable. We would highly, highly recommend Jean Bosco and Virunga Amani Tours to anyone considering activities in DRC!

This was a very safe and professionally run tour. One of the best I have ever experienced. Border crossings were efficient, accommodations and fun exceeded expectations, and there are no words for being so close to the gorillas, or sitting on the top of an active volcano. Thank you for a great experience!

Virunga Amani is a great choice to experience this amazing volcano at a reasonable price. Jean went out of his way to pick me up and drop me at my place outside Gisenyi, and the border crossing was very smooth due to his good organization. Guides were professional and informative, and the food was quite good as well. I highly recommend them for all your needs in this beautiful region!

After searching through various companies that offer similar Virunga trips I sent emails to 4 of them. All of them responded with offers but Virunga Amani's was the most professional, inclusive and fair priced. We had many questions throughout the planning stages of the trip, Jean Bosco @ Virunga was always quick to respond and cordial. The trip itself was exactly as described, amazing gorilla watching and an epic volcano trek. The security was comforting, the lodging was luxurious and the food was tasty. I can highly recommend Virunga Amani.

I booked my tour with Virunga Amani Tours in late Jul 2019. There are two possible entry options that you can get a Visa letter to enable you to enter if you book a tour with the Virunga National Park 1) Fly directly to Goma Airport, 2) Enter through Gisenyi, Rwanda overland. Jean Bosco from Virunga Armani Tours contacted me almost immediately after sending him my itinerary plan to DRC and was quick to arrange all my hotel bookings and visa applications so I could enter DRC through Goma Airport. A complete list of equipment needed for the hike was provided prior to my arrival (if you forget to pack these, you could buy them just before the hike at the base). Ebola Situation is taken very seriously. There are many road checkpoints around Goma requiring you to wash your hands/ use disinfectants and take your temperature. Jean Bosco provided constant regular update on my concerns prior to my arrival. Safety situation: it’s better now than before early-2019 as you are required to be escorted with armed park rangers. I had 3 with me throughout my hike in Nyiragongo. At no point I felt in danger during my trip to Virunga in DRC. I went for the Nyiragongo Volcano climb and it was absolutely spectacular, although it was quite tough requiring intermediate hiking ability as the volcano is very steep towards the top. You could actually witness the lava lake in the crater and small eruptions at night. The sheer magnificence of the volcano even got my travel story featured on 2 local newspapers in Singapore. Jean Bosco and his team will not disappoint and they will ensure that you will leave DRC with a memorable and safe experience. I will highly recommend using Virunga Armani Tours when visiting Virunga Park & Kahuzi in DRC!
