Cool One-day Akagera National Park Game Drive with Daily Departures

Leave Kigali as early as 06h00 and drive for an estimated 3 hours to reach Akagera National Park by 09h00. Spend the entire day through the park to depart to Kigali late afternoon or in the evening.<br><br>Akagera National Park has a diversity of wildlife including buffaloes, elephants, giraffes, zebras, impalas and many others. After a long time being extinct in Akagera National Park, the black rhinos and lions have recently been restocked. Their sighting is always not guaranteed due to their small number and the hiding character of the black rhino. Enjoy the game drive viewing the natural habitat of different animals, birds and enjoying the view of different lakes and landscape.

This place is located at Heaven, so it's understandably more expensive than their location in Kaciru. However, you get what you pay for. All of the crafts are high quality and beautiful.

Whether you go to the location in Heaven, or the other store/ craft space near the KCB building, this company is an awesome and sustainable shopping experience. I love how nice the saleswomen are and how helpful they are in finding the perfect memory to take home. Their carved birds or handmade baskets are beautiful and of high- quality. Really suggest if you would like to do some boutique shopping.

Tourist traps are a dime a dozen, and so many shops have "negotiable" prices which tend to be higher for Americans and Europeans. Here at Azizi, you will find real quality hand-crafted goods and clearly marked, fair prices. The sales staff are delightful, friendly and quite helpful. They even allowed me to purchase using some Rwandan francs and some American dollars. The real plus here is that because of the mission of the organization, you can be sure that the money you spend here actually goes to the artist/crafter and provides them with sustainable income. This is a total win - win!!!

We shopped at Azizi Life while staying at Heaven Boutique Hotel. There are many tourist shops in Kigali — some even at tables set up in the courtyard of Heaven — which all sell the same low-grade tourist souvenirs that may not even be made in Rwanda. Azizi is different. The goods there are very high quality, and sourced from local craft cooperatives. Each piece has a tag "made with pride … display with pride" and the artist's signature. We found many pieces we liked for gifts or to grace our home — more then would fit in our suitcases. One of the pieces we liked was a tall, contoured basket of woven bamboo about 1 meter high — definitely too big for a suitcase! We inquired about shipping, and yes, for a reasonable cost they would handle packing and shipping to New York. We ended up purchasing a good many items, some of which we brought with us on the plane, and others packed with the tall basket for shipment. Whenever shipping items back from overseas there is always the concern that they will arrive undamaged, in good time … Azizi Life did it responsibly in combination with Iposita postal service, and our lovely Rwandan pieces arrived undamaged in New York about two weeks later. Although the prices are considerably higher than in the cheap tourist shops, the quality of work and authenticity is at a much higher level, and we are very happy with our purchases. The quality of the workers in the boutique was excellent as well … we went in three times over 2–3 days, and they put items aside for us, updated items, weights and shipping options, all without pressure, and accepted credit cards for payment. One word of caution for those traveling by plane … we purchased some beautiful candles and packed them in our carry-on luggage, but apparently this is not allowed and sadly they were confiscated at the Kigali airport. So if you buy candles, be sure to pack them in your checked luggage! And enjoy the great artisan crafts at Azizi!

Sign up for this experience, trying out all the daily activities of a village woman - visit in a village woman's home, put on traditional clothes, prepare and cook a meal that you will eat with your hands, get water from the lake, sit and talk about life... I was surprised how much I enjoyed this day. We got caught in the rain and our new found friends sang songs with us while we waited. Definitely worthwhile if you have the time.
