Per person

Enjoy Akagera National Park Adventure With Us

With our local and friendly tour guide, the transport is assured with a 4x4 Toyota Rav4 car with Internet WIFI onboard to keep you connected with your loved ones and the world (***Some spots in the park do not have connectivity***). Spend the entire day through the park to depart back and reach Kigali in the evening. Akagera National Park has a diversity of wildlife including the antelopes, zebras, the Masai giraffes, hippos, buffaloes, elephants, and many others. After a long time being extinct, the black rhinos and lions have recently been restocked though 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 landscapes.


Depart from Kigali as early as 05h30-06h00 and drive for an estimated two hours and a half to reach Akagera National Park by 09h00 and then spend the entire day through the park to depart to Kigali in the evening.
