Virunga Opens New Overnight Volcanic Eruption Trek!

On 6 November, Nyamulagira Volcano erupted in a spectacular display of fire, smoke, and lava which is on-going. Virunga National Park is launching a new overnight trek into a close but safe area near the erupting volcano. We don’t know how long the eruption will last (it could be weeks to months), so don’t miss this incredible opportunity. At night the eruption lights up the entire sky in a brilliant deep orange. It’s pretty amazing. Come enjoy this once-in-a-lifetime experience.
