Spend your 1 day at Akagera National park
Depart for Akagera national park which is located in Eastern Rwanda on the border with Tanzania. African parks is currently managing this park and have done a great job with conservation. In the past, there was lots of conflict between people and the park but this was solved by fencing off part of the park and the introduction of community tours where visitors are encouraged to visit the communities and benefit accordingly. Akagera national park is the only Savannah park in Rwanda and is home to several mammal species including Lions, Elephants, Giraffes, Hippos, Kobs, Zebras, Bushbucks, Waterbucks and most recently Black Rhinos have been introduced from South Africa, making Akagera national park officially a big 5 park like it was many years ago. It is also home to numerous bird species in several habitats which include woodland, swamps, lakes, and Savannah. Picnic lunch and later drive back to Kigali and drop off at your hotel.
