    Akagera National Park
    Stop: 8 hours - Admission included
    Rwanda may be a country known for its mountain gorillas but it is also home to some of the biggest game in the world. Take a safari through Akagera National Park and you will find yourself in the humbling presence of soaring giraffes, eye-catching zebras and a variety of different antelopes. Drive alongside the Akagera River, the most remote source of the Nile, and find yourself staring into the eyes of hippos that comprise one of the largest concentrations of their kind in the world. During your drive, you might also stumble upon leopards, spotted hyenas, elephants, buffaloes, baboons, crocodiles, bushbucks or the ever-striking impalas. All of these creatures make their home in the mixed savannah, mountain and swamp-land of this park, which lines Rwanda’s eastern border with Tanzania. A safari through Akagera National Park remains one of the top must-see attractions for tourists on their visit to Rwanda. Treat yourself to an unforgettable adventure through some of the most diverse and exciting wildlife in the country

Its not what it says
We tried to go. But the cost shown here is not the actual one. Whats written in trip advisor is not the actual one. They have lots of hidden charges. People should confirm for what they get before paying.

Im sorry but its what it says. The price you first see when you visit the page is $263. It clearly states from $263. That price is for 14 to 15 persons. You should have clicked check availability after selecting 2 persons and you would see that the cost for 2 persons is $824. When you tried to book directly through us this is what we tried to explain. It is unfortunate that you sent us a bad review yet we are not to blame. We have no hidden costs. Previous travelers got more than what they paid for. This is currently the most affordable Akagera tour in Rwanda. We offer accommodation at 20% discount and we only make $50 profit per tour. Kindly note in the future when you are trying to book through TripAdvisor or like in your casa contact the company directly from does not mean thats the price per person but the Lowest price per person for larger groups. At $264, that would only cover do transport and park permit for 1 person. I'm sorry but at ghat rate we would not pay for accommodation for 2 people and. Park entrance for an extra person. Kindly get back to the TripAdvisor page and familiarize yourself with the booking system and you will see we at not to blame. It should be noted with anyone reading this review that the person who wrote this review did not conduct the tour with us and we are forwarding it to Tripadvisor to be taken down

Best people to go to Akagera with!
Me and my brother are both students and came to NDA as the actual tourist information centre was very poor. Abdallah was extremely helpful and gave us suggestions of things to do whilst we were in Rwanda. We then chose to go to Akagera with NDA as they had been so friendly and helpful. They managed to arrange us a tour at a price offered by no-one else, for the exact same trip elsewhere it was roughly $1000 pp and NDA managed to arrange our s for $650 for both of us as they knew we were on a student budget!The trip was fantastic and Baptiste was very knowledgeable, friendly, funny and helpful, he made our trip! If you want to go to Akagera, go with NDA, you will not find a better company to go with anywhere else!
Thanks for the trip,

George and Tom

2 day Safari
We went on the 2 day safari with New Dawn Associates. We arranged the trip with Anny and Richard. Our driver-guide was Claude. They were great! We were picked up in Kigali at 5:00 am. It took 2hrs 45 min to get there. We stopped on the way and got coffee and a roll. We toured the southern portion of the park then went on two optimal side trips, a boat ride and night safari. We stayed at Ruzizi Tented Lodge which was very unique and nice. The next day we toured the northern portion of the park. The trip was fantastic!
