3 Days Akagera Wildlife Tour – Rwanda Game Safari

Our 3 Days Akagera Wildlife Tour – Rwanda Game Safari enables you to see lots of elephant and buffalo emerge from the woodland to drink at the lakes, while lucky visitors might stumble across a leopard, a spotted hyena or even a stray lion. You will also see lots of Hippos, Zebras, Impalas, warthogs, buffalo, and Giraffes among others.

Akagera National Park has a variety of wildlife and is a habitat for over 500 species of birds, dominated scenically by the labyrinth of swamps and lakes that follow the meandering course of the Akagera River; the most remote source of the Nile, this is archetypal African savannah landscape of tangled acacia woodland interspersed with open grassland.
