1 Day Akagera National Park Safari


Akagera national park is the sole savannah park in Rwanda where you may observe the Big 5, providing you with a traditional Rwanda wildlife safari. This one-day wildlife safari in Akagera National Park will give you a traditional African safari perspective on Rwanda, the “Land of a Thousand Hills.” You can see different parts of Rwanda in Akagera National Park, which is a mixture of savannah and forested landscapes. There is a chance that you will see large mammals and stunning scenery while you are traveling.

Akagera national park is situated in Eastern Rwanda, close to the Tanzanian border. Currently, this park is managed by African Parks, a non-profit organization, in collaboration with the Rwanda Development Board, and they are doing an excellent job with conservation. The introduction of community tours, where visitors are urged to visit the villages and benefit appropriately, and the fencing off of a portion of the park helped to somewhat address the conflicts that existed in the past between residents and the park administrators. The only Savannah park in Rwanda, Akagera National Park provides opportunities for wildlife observations of a variety of mammal species, including Lions, Elephants, Giraffes, Hippos, Kobs, Zebras, Bushbucks, Waterbucks, leopards, buffaloes and black Rhinos which were exported from South Africa to mention but a few restoring Akagera National Park’s status as a Big 5 Park, as it once had.

Today at around five in the morning, we depart Kigali for a day excursion to Akagera National Park, which is located around two hours and thirty minutes from Kigali. The majority of Akagera National Park land area is a Savannah park. You will have the chance to see elephants, zebras, giraffes, buffaloes, impalas, waterbucks, rhinos, the elusive leopard, and recently introduced lions on the game drive toward the park’s northern region. Arrive at the park through the southern gate, and then proceed to the park reception for a quick orientation. Your day will be spent primarily in the park’s northern region, which is home to a variety of species due to its topography and vegetation. Depending on the number of animals seen and the level of interest, the Akagera wildlife drive might last up to 6 hours. The tour guide will offer advice on lunch options, including places where you may buy lunch or bring a packed lunch. Following that, you will continue your game drive, leaving later that evening through the northern gate.
