Full description
Get picked up by your driver guide from your hotel in Kigali at 5:30 AM and depart for Akagera National Park located along the eastern border of Rwanda, hugging the border with Tanzania.  Arrive for a morning game drive, searching for the big five, rhinos, lions, buffalo, leopard, and elephant in the expansive Park. Typically hilly countryside gives way to the savannas of the Great Rift Valley. Dominated by lakes, swamps, and marshland, the area boasts a huge compliment of nature and wildlife that cannot be found elsewhere in the country.   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. Arrive at the picnic site for your lunch then later go on your afternoon exploration with a game drive by visiting the giraffe valley. Depart the park in the late afternoon through the northern gate and travel back to Kigali arriving early in the evening.
