Goma is the capital of North Kivu province 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 13–18 km (8.1–11.2 mi) south of the active Nyiragongo Volcano. The recent history of Goma has been dominated by the volcano and the Rwandan genocide of 1994, which in turn fuelled the First and Second Congo Wars. The aftermath of these events was still having effects on the city and its surroundings in 2010. The city was captured by rebels of the March 23 Movement during the M23 rebellion in late 2012, but it has since been retaken by government forces.

The Kilungutwe River is a stream in the Mwenga Territory of the South Kivu Province, in the eastern part of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). With an elevation of 882 meters, it serves as a tributary to the Ulindi River. Once it merges with the Ulindi River approximately 30 km to the north-west, the Ulindi River continues its course, eventually joining the Congo River. The Kilungutwe River was historically known as the gateway to the jungle from the highlands to the northeast. The river is home to various species of aquatic life, including catfish, tilapia, and mudfish, which are essential to the region's fishing industry. Further downstream, in the Kilungutwe village, the surrounding area is rich in biodiversity, with lush vegetation and a diverse range of flora and fauna. Additionally, the Kilungutwe River is a lifeline for the local economy, providing a crucial source of water for irrigation and fishing. Its impact extends far beyond the village, making it a cornerstone of the larger community's way of life.
