Serena Hotels introduces the Goma Serena Hotel


The only man I envy, is the man who has not yet been to Africa –for he has so much to look forward to”- Richard Mullin. As a testament to his words, DR-Congo is one of those countries largely overlooked due to negative publicity. And since we delight in giving our guests the best experiences our exotic destinations have to offer, we are pleased to announce the opening of our new crowned jewel in Goma in May 2020. Goma Serena Hotel, is the only 5-star hotel in Goma with a room inventory 109 rooms all of which face Africa’s 8th largest lake, Lake Kivu.

This destination is your gateway to thrilling and unique experiences that no other destination in the world could claim to offer. From trekking gorillas in Virunga National Park, hiking the active volcanic Mt. Nyiragongo where you can revel at the stunning views of the caldera lake on the summit, to going on a boat cruise on the beautiful Lake Kivu; fresh experiences to help you unravel the beauty of this largely unexplored destination.
