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.
