In earlier morning around 04:30 Am, our English /French speaking tour guide will meet you at your hotel or elsewhere in Kigali, short briefing and drive to eastern part of Rwanda, to Akagera National Park. Arriving in the Akagera National Park around 7h30 Am (125 Km/2.5 hrs), transfer to headquarter for registration, then proceed on a morning game viewing drive in this African Savannah Park.
Plenty of animals can be seen, including; Lion, Elephants, Giraffes, Buffaloes, Zebras, Hippos, Rhinos, Crocodiles and also many other mammal species. Known as one of the most scenic savannahs in East Africa, the game drive in Akagera National Park provides you with opportunity to also view gentle hills blending beautifully with lowland swamps and water bodies. Dominated by the labyrinth of swamps and lakes that follow the meandering Akagera River, the most remote source of River Nile, Akagera National Park (1.075 Km2) is archetypal African Savannah; tangled acacia woodland interspersed with open grassland but above all, Akagera is big game country! Herds of elephants and buffalo emerge from the woodland to drink at the lakes; lucky visitors might stumble across a leopard, a spotted hyena, even a stray lion. Giraffe and zebra haunt the savannah and more dozen types of antelope inhabit the park, most commonly the handsome chestnut-coated impala and world’s largest antelope, the statuesque Cape Eland. Alongside the picturesque lakes, pods of 50+ hippopotami grunt and splutter throughout the day, while outsized crocodile soak up the sun with their vast jaws menacingly agape. And lining the lakes; some of the continent’s densest concentrations of water birds, amongst the parks over 500 recorded species.
In the late afternoon, exit with more game viewing en-route and drive back to Kigali for an evening reach.
