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

Leave Kigali as early as 06h00 and drive for an estimated two 2.5 hours to reach Akagera National Park by 08h30-09h00. Spend the entire day through the park to depart to Kigali late afternoon or in the evening, by 18h00-19h00.<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.

I originally considered booking a guide because it was my first African market experience and I read lots about it being overwhelming. It's not!! Went as a group of four, we just paired off and came and went. In the produce section it's okay to take pictures of the goods, but please do not photograph the stallholders/customers without permission. The two areas you have to work a bit harder are the fabric/clothing section and the jewellery/baskets/bags/general TOURIST section. Just have fun with it though! Ask the price of something they will tell you straight away (no need to make a blind offer), ask the stall next door what their price is and it's not long before you can gauge what a fair price is. They will do discounts for buying multiples. They are never aggressively pushy, quite quiet, just be polite and firm. DO get of the 'main road' for each section, ESPECIALLY fabric/dressmakers and souvenirs - you are allowed to just walk through wherever 'out the back', even if it looks like you are meant to just stay on that one main path. The people on the main row have a huge advantage just by being visible, so it's nice to support those deeper inside the rows who don't get as much traffic.

This is a local market that sells everything under the sun - vegetables, fruits, shoes, clothing, etc. There are numerous fabric stalls where you can select a fabric and style of shirt or skirt, for example. They take your measurements and your clothing is ready in about an hour. I should say that the workmanship of these hand tailored clothes is not optimal. Patterns don't match up, finishing is very rough...so don't expect something that will fit perfectly or last...

Not for the faint of heart. There are an incredible amount of shops and folks coming at you in all directions to buy, buy, buy. We are used to this type of sales, but if you aren't... you maybe should bring a local! It was fun and I love the chaos and colors and noises, again, not for the faint of heart. Well worth the trip, we got a taxi who waited for over an hour and a half for us... I loved it!!!!

First, if you do not like being crowded or in close quarters, this is not the place for you. However, if you are adventureous and looking for a great assortment of food and local products along with a chance to intermingle with local people, THIS IS THE PLACE FOR YOU. BUT GO WITH A LOCAL. Fortunately I had a friend who took me around this martket. Be prepared, once you enter the area, even if you don't speak, you will be surrounding by people trying to sell you bags and their products. There is an outdoor part that mainly sells fruits, veggies and some meats. (When you buy fresh fruits, make sure to wash them with a special product for washing or get someone to tell you how to wash them Rwanda style). I truy enjoyed this market and was able to find a lot of produce and items at a very reasonable place.
