After an early breakfast, your exploration starts with a boat trip on Lake Ihema which is very rewarding for seeing large numbers of hippos, huge Nile crocodiles and many birds. Birders are likely to see African Fish Eagle, Open-bill stork, African Jacana, Golliath Heron, Paryrus gonolec and many other species.
After the boat trip, you will continue your exploration along the lakes Kivumba, Hago, Mihindi and Rwanyakizinga.
If you are interested in conservation, we propose you a Behind the Scenes tour which offers an opportunity to learn about the conservation developments in Akagera National Park. It includes meeting people close to the park management. This is a perfect opportunity to know more about the re-introduction of lions , black rhino and the elephant project.
