Nyiragongo, famous for its almost constant lava lake within the summit crater, it is a stratovolcano of the Virunga Volcanic complex in the East African Rift Valley and is probably the most dangerous in Africa. In total there are 8 mountains in the complex however Nyiragongo and the nearby Nyamuragira (picture below) are the only ones which remain active today.
The two most important and devastating eruptions of Nyiragongo occurred in 1977 and 2002, both of these eruptions caused many fatalities. The eruption in 1977 completely and rapidly drained the lava lake on the 10th January 1977 creating rapid lava flows (up to ~60 mph in some cases) this rapidly overwhelmed the flanks and displaced many people present in Goma and on the flanks of the volcano. The lava lake then began to refill and on January 17th 2002 another eruption occurred when a fissure initially propogated from the top of the volcano (and later from the base) allowing the outflow of lava, the length of fissures totalled almost 20 km. Lava fountaining (or Hawaiian activity) was also present during this eruption.
