Tchegera Island in Congo

Views of Tchegera Island

Tchegera Island is found on the northern shore of Lake Kivu which is shared between Rwanda and Congo. It is one of the best, yet least known destinations in Congo and offers perfect relaxation and exclusion.

While there, you can choose to lay back and relax on the beach or check out other parts of the Island using a Kayak or Paddle board – all available at Tchegera island tented camp. Bird viewing on the island is great and the most common birds there include heron, cormorants, African eagles and gulls.

On a good clear nigh

t, you will enjoy amazing views of the red-lit sky by the lave glow from Nyiragongo and Nyamulagira volcanoes and with that reflecting on the lake’s surface, it becomes totally magical! The day light offers captivating views of the lake and the four Volcanoes in a picturesque setting.

Getting there;

To access Tchegera Island, you must purchase a permit and secure round boat transfer. You have to show that proof before setting off to the island and the charges are per person. So, transportation to Tchegera Island is only by boat but you have to find your way to Goma first.


The only available accommodation there is Tchegera Island Tented Camp that is run by Virunga national park authorities so prior booking is very much advised.

All in all, the Island is a great spot to unwind and escape the bustle and hustle of Goma town, recover from your Gorilla trekking in Virunga or Nyiragongo hike. It could as well be a perfect choice for your honeymoon holiday in Congo – that’s true!

Contact us for any further information, planning and booking assistance and look forward to remarkable holiday in Congo with the Island to you. We will make it as memorable as it should beJ
