Best adventure in Rwanda

Written on: February 20, 2014   |   I visited in December 2013 Situated in Eastern Rwanda along the Tanzanian border, Akagera National Park protects animals and vegetation in three ecoregions: mountain, savannah and swamp.
The park is named for the Kagera River which flows along its eastern boundary feeding into several lakes with the largest being Lake Ihema.
Akagera is a big game country with large herds of giraffe, buffalo and zebra which move across the savannah, and rarely elephants can be seen emerging from the woodland to drink at the lakes.
Akagera harbours several antelope types, especially the handsome impala, oribi and bushbuck. It also features the topi, the rare roan and the world's largest antelope, the cape eland.
On a boat trip on Lake Ihema, expect to view crocodiles and hippos and on a night drive, leopard and hyena might be spotted. Akagera is birders paradise with water birds and a species list of 525.
Akagera is so adventurous that you would not dare miss out!

My family and I have just returned from a great time in Africa. This was my first time to Rwanda and I wanted to see as much as possible. Although there are no gorillas here, we did see quite a few big animals like giraffe and elephants. It wasn't too crowded and lodging was nice. I would recommend for a day. read more
