Areas where Self drive is Allowed with Car hire from Car rental Congo

Only after 3 years of Travelers in Democratic republic of congo we have been able to cover Goma, Bukavu and we discovered that some roads in Congo are not nice but you try to minimize the Driving speed to enable you arrive at the particular destination on the stated time.


Goma is the capital of the North Kivu province, which is ethnically similar and neighboring to South Kivu (with the capital Bukavu); together the two provinces are known as “the Kivus”.

Goma is a city in the eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo. It is located on the northern shore of Lake Kivu, next to the Rwandan city of Gisenyi. The lake and the two cities are in the Albertine Rift, the western branch of the East African Rift system. Goma lies only 13 to 18 km due south of the crater of the active Nyiragongo Volcano.its the base town for all Gorilla Safaris to Virunga National Park and it has nice accommodations in the region.

During my road trip in goma, we visited the Most Active Nyiragongo Mountain in the great virunga National Park and Dont miss the self drive safari Experience to reduce the cost of Congo gorilla safari holiday in Africa once booked with Car rental Congo.


Bukavu is a city in eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), lying at the extreme south-western edge of Lake Kivu, west of Cyangugu in Rwanda, and separated from it by the outlet of the Ruzizi River. It is the capital of the South Kivu province and as of 2012 it had an estimated population of 806,940.

Bukavu is an important transport hub and gateway to eastern DR Congo, but as a result of the wars the road network has deteriorated and highways to Goma, Kisangani and other towns have not been fully restored.

As with Goma, close proximity to the paved road network of East Africa and the functioning eastern section of the Trans-African Highway to Mombasa may allow a faster recovery than other Congolese towns. Bukavu’s proximity to the Lake Tanganyika ports of Bujumbura and Kalundu-Uvira give it an additional advantage, with access on the lake to the rail heads of Kigoma   and Kalemie  .

Bukavu is the nearest town to travelers visiting Kahuzi Biega National Park for Eastern lowland gorilla trekking and hiking mount Kahuzi & Biega Hike in Congo. Eastern lowland gorillas can be cheap once done on Self drive Safari.

Please Note that the route to connect from Goma to Bukavu is impassable at times and you will need to drive on Rwanda side or Take a ferry from Goma to Bukavu in the northern part of lake Kivu.
