Not only do you have to watch out for the people who live there, volcanoes and earthquakes also love to keep travellers on their toes.
So prepare yourself and keep an eye on the news to see what the current situation is, as many towns are built on the slopes of volcanoes.
Volcanic eruptions don't happen daily, but they do happen every few years.
Nyamulagira is Africa's most active volcano, so keep an eye on what it is doing.
The reason tourists may get caught up here is the wildlife that exists on the slopes of these mountains. Due to the abundant jungle which grows in volcanic regions, some of the Congo's famous primates also inhabit these regions. This draws tourists into the areas.
When it comes to Nyiragongo volcano, tours have begun taking intrepid souls up the slopes for a visit.
This may seem a good idea, but just be wary. Make sure tour operators are going to take care of your well-being.
Flowing lava adds another element to the sort of danger you'll face in the Congo.
The DRC is subject to constant earthquakes.
An earthquake hit the towns of Bukavu and Goma in February 2008. Many people were injured and property was damaged.
It probably isn't going to worry too many people, except the guarantee that most accommodation in the Congo isn't earthquake-proof.
