The 2 days Rwanda Wildlife safari will take you to Akagera National Park, it is Rwanda’s only Savannah Park covering an area of 1,122Km2. Akagera was established in 1934 and it gets this name from River Akagera which makes its way through the Park and pours its waters into different lakes like Lake Victoria, Lake Ihema and other water bodies. The park hosts various wildlife and bird species.
Pick up from the Airport or your Hotel in Kigali by our skilled guide who will brief you about the safari to Akagera and transfer you to the Southern part of the Park through the spectacular countryside endowed with rolling hills.
