What to bring
Join this riveting day tour to Akagera national park for a wildlife safari. Explore the park on a game drive and see hippos, elephants, lions and more. Learn about the wildlife from your guide and enjoy lunch afterward.
The tour will depart from Kigali at 5:00 AM and arrive at around 7:30 AM. Akagera National Park is located in eastern Rwanda on the border of Tanzania. It is the only Savannah park in Rwanda and is home to elephants, zebras, giraffes, buffaloes, lions, bushbucks, waterbucks, and black rhinos.
The park is also home to numerous bird species in several habitats which include woodland, swamps, lakes, and Savannah. Take a game drive in search of these animals. The game drive can last about 4 hours depending on the animal sightings and interest.
Have lunch at the Akagera game lodge before the last game drive on the way out of the park. Arrive in Kigali later in the evening.
The park was once marred with lots of conflict between people and the park, but this was solved by fencing off part of the park and introducing community tours where visitors are encouraged to visit the communities and benefit accordingly.
