Cool One-day Akagera National Park Game Drive with Daily Departures



Per person

Enjoy Akagera National Park Adventure With Us

Duration: One day

Type: Shared


With this shared One-day Akagera National Park Adventure, Countryside Tours helps you to explore the majestic Akagera National Park, home to a variety of savannah animals and wildlife.

Akagera National Park has a diversity of wildlife including buffaloes, elephants, giraffes, zebras, impalas and many others. After a long time being extinct in Akagera National Park, the black rhinos and lions have recently been restocked. 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 landscape.


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 late afternoon or in the evening.
