AKAGERA NATIONAL PARK RWANDA.

About the attractions in the Akagera National Park.

This national park is named after the river that runs through it. Just from a scenic point of view, the park is savannah in nature and is among Rwanda’s natural treasures that will always remind you of the savannah reserves of Kenya and Tanzania. You will also find the open savannah plains, the hills, lakes filled with crocodiles and hippos, the broad leaved forests, as well as the candelabra Euphoria trees. There are also the burchell zebras, elephants, masai giraffes, buffaloes, as well as many species of antelopes that include; topis, defassa waterbuck, the roan antelopes, bohor reedbuck, the large Eland antelopes, Oribi common duiker, the semi aquatic sitstunga antelopes, the klipspringer as well as lions all in the Akagera National Park.

And when it comes to the privates, you will as well find many groups of olive baboons, the velvet monkeys, the wide eyed bush babies as well as the blue monkeys. You will also come across the catlike genet, the black masked civet, black tailed mongoose, warthogs, bush pigs, serval cats, and the lions are seen rarely.akagera wildlife safari

The birders will find this national park a natural treasure with over 520 bird species and 100 of these cannot be found in any other destination apart from the Akagera national park. You can find over 44 species of the Raptors, the shoebill, papyrus Gonolex, as well as many migrant birds and some of these include; the great snipe and the lesser kesterel.

This National park also represents the northern limit of many of the Zambezi an home species that include; the arnot chat, Sauza shrike, as well as the long tailed cistoa. The main unique feature in this national park is the feeling of being out alone, this means that you can drive for hours and you don’t run into any other vehicle which is also a rare delight in East Africa. This national park is also a well worth a visit and is filled with many surprises, a fence has also been created to protect the park animals from the poachers and those that want to encroach and bring in their cattle for grazing. This national park makes the safari well rounded and also gives you the best that Rwanda has to offer for those interested in a savannah safari adventure.

The roads in Akagera national park have been improved since the African parks came joined in on the initiative which allowed many game drives around the hills, lakes and plains. These mostly take place in the morning and afternoon or can even last a full day exploring the north with the night game drives good or viewing the Akagera nocturnal wildlife.

The boat trips on Lake Ihema shores which is the second largest lake in Rwanda has got great aquatic birds and you, can also go fishing on Lake Shakani. Mostly the African parks also offer a chance to get a feeling for management of the national park on the scenes safaris to the headquarters and meet the staff. Since Rwanda is so particular on gender equality, the park has got many female guides which are a rare breed on many of African safaris.

Itinerary

Depart from and Arrival in Kigali

The Volcano National park lies in northwestern Rwanda and borders Virunga National Park in the Democratic Republic of Congo and Mgahinga Gorilla National Park in Uganda, located just a short 2hrs drive from Rwanda’s capital of Kigali. It is a once in a lifetime encounter that you wouldn’t want to miss out on the moment you get an opportunity to visit Rwanda. Wake up early in the morning at 4:30 am and depart for the national park. It’s a 112 km long drive to get to the Volcanoes National Park in Ruhengeri, Musanze province which is the habitat to the endangered Mountain gorillas. You can take visually attractive pictures from the different stopovers along the journey and also get to have a cup of coffee on the way. At exactly 8.30 am, we move to the park’s headquarters in Kinigi Village where you are briefed by the ranger about the rules and regulations governing Gorilla tracking. You are distributed into different groups and then sent off into the forest. The trek takes an hour to about 8 more depending on where the gorillas had been the previous day. The hike is quite strenuous but all the more rewarding once you set your eyes on the gentle mountain gorillas. They always move in a big number with the Silverback at the lead. You will watch them carry about their day to day routine like the juveniles playing, mothers feeding their young ones and the Silverbacks taking watch out for their families avoiding any predator.
