    Akagera National Park
    Stop: 7 hours - Admission included
    Today early morning we leave Kigali at about 5 am for a day trip to Akagera national park, which is about 2.5 hours away from Kigali. Dominated by lakes, swamps and marshland, the area boasts a huge compliment of nature and wildlife that cannot be found elsewhere in the country. We will arrive for a morning game drive, searching for the big five, rhinos, lions, buffalos, leopard and elephant in the expansive Park.

The tour company was very accommodating as our group went from 2-6 people. The was a perfect length tour and we enjoyed the sights and the trip overall. Keep in mind that you are hiring more of a driver than a continuous tour guide but the park rangers will give you an overview of where to find what animals as well as other tips. Our driver did have Eagle eyes and pointed out animals in the distance that we didn't quite notice. Everyone had a great time.

Rwanda is beautiful. They are constantly concerned with preserving their environment for future generations. They may be poor but they know how to make what money they do have go far. The country is absolutely beautiful and the main roads are really good quality but be prepared for a bit of bone shaking when you get onto the minor roads. It’s worth the effort though as there is so much to see and do. Rwandans go to bed early so don’t expect a scintillating night life outside of Kigali. The people there are the most polite and helpful that I have made in any other part of the world. I can’t wait to go back and renew my acquaintance with both the country and it people.

My daughter and I spent the day in the beautiful Akagera National Park. Every detail of our trip was wonderful from our transportation to viewing the animals to our amazing guide Kenneth. Rwanda is now my favorite place and I plan on going back. We also did the one day monkey trekking tour which was equally fun and exciting. You won’t be disappointed and will know your guide is going the extra mile to ensure a memorable day for you.

Thanks to Devine for a wonderful day in the gorgeous Akagera National Park. The lush green of this park and landscape is worth the day visit. While I've been on more impressive safaris in South Africa and Zimbabwe, this is a great day visit from Kigali and I can definitely recommend Devine. The open air car was such a great way to experience the park, with your head above the van and the wind blowing in your hair. Our park guide Mary led us close to the elephants, so very thankful for that. Devine was on time, safe and provided a friendly driver. My trip was a bit pricey for the day-trip, but can recommend them.

Everything was perfect, the driver Edson picked me up at 5 AM and off we went to Akagera National Park. In the Park‘s visitor centre we took another guide on board, Gisèle. Both guides were very friendly and tried to show me the maximum. I was travelling alone, but with Edson and Gisèle I was in good and pleasant company. Saw a lot of animals: zebras, giraffes, waterbuck, topi, elephant, hippo, buffalo, impalas...The park is beautiful, green and lush. In the northern part, the concentration of animals was very high. It felt like being in the Garden of Eden! I warmly recommend this trip! Very well organized, reliable, safe, perfect.
