1 DAY AKAGERA SAFARI
Day 1; Kigali - AKAGERA NATIONAL PARK
You will have an early morning breakfast, and drive to Akagera National Park located in the Southern part of Rwanda, which is 2h30min drive from Kigali. Akagera National Park lies in eastern Rwanda, hugging the border with Tanzania. It's characterized by woodland, swamps, low mountains and savannah. The varied terrain shelters wildlife including zebras, giraffes, elephants, lions and hundreds of bird species, such as the rare shoebill stork. In the southern part of the park, vast Lake Ihema is home to hippos and crocodiles.
The Park has a diversity of wildlife including buffaloes, elephants, giraffes, zebras, impalas and many others. After a long time being extinct in Akagera National Park, the black rhinos and lions have recently been restocked. Their sighting is always not guaranteed due to their small number and the hiding character of the black rhino. Enjoy the game drive viewing the natural habitat of different animals, birds and enjoying the view of different lakes and landscape. This will be a very rewarding experience so remember to carry your camera so as to capture every memorable event. Then after all that you will drive back to Kigali.
