Getting to Virunga National Park Congo

The southern parts of Virunga National Park are easily accessed in a number of different ways the most common are:

Overland journey via Uganda, cross the border in Bunagana, from where the Mountain gorilla sites Jomba and Bikenge can be reached within 1 hour. The border crossing is easy, and a local visa can be bought at the border for only 50$, however this visa is not a fully recognized visa and can only be used to visit the park and subsequently leaving the country at the Bunagana border post again.

Overland via Rwanda, cross the border at Gisenyi/Goma, the border crossing is easy if you pre-arranged a visa, if not it will be difficult or expensive (280$ if bought at the border).

By Air: Fly into Goma, from within the DRC many flights connect to Goma, from outside the DRC Entebbe is the only city connected by TMK. Once again make sure you have a pre-arranged visa.
