For the Bird Lovers, the Park is home to more than 550 Bird Species making it a truly Birding Paradise.


Day 1: Transfer to Akagera National Park

Your Guide will pick you up early in the morning from your Hotel in Kigali and by 5am proceed to drive to Akagera NP in Eastern Rwanda. The Drive takes about 2.5hrs and you will have a short coffee stopover at Imigongo Café before proceeding to the Park, Check in then start a 7 hour Long Drive along Dirt Roads through thick Acacia Vegetation, Swampy Patches, gentle Montane slopes and flat Savannah Grassland Plains where we usually have our Packed Lunch from. On a good Day, One could easily see all the Big 5 or a few but with all the scenic beauty and Wildlife Servings Akagera NP has to offer, it’s always truly an amazing spectacle. We will drive from the Southern Gates of the Park to the Northern Gate where we will exit the Park later in the evening then begin the 3 Hour Drive back to Kigali where your Guide will drop you off at the Airport or your Hotel marking the end of the Trip.
