The city's boundaries are defined by various geographic features; to the north lies Nyiragongo Territory, to the south, Lake Kivu, to the east, the Republic of Rwanda, and to the west, Masisi Territory. Goma is strategically located on the Goma plain, which is composed of volcanic lavas and gradual slopes gently towards Lake Kivu. The plain is bordered by the Virunga volcanic chain, which comprises prominent peaks such as Nyamulagira, Nyiragongo, Mikeno, Visoke, Gahinga, Karisimbi, and Sabinyo. Elevations in the northern part of the plain range from 1640 to 2000 meters, with the volcanic fields of Nyamuragira and Nyiragongo exhibiting continuous CO2 degassing. Nyiragongo, in particular, has been active since the early 1900s, featuring an active lava lake and periodic eruptions, including notable events in 1977, 2002, and 2021.
