    Day 1

    Transfer to Akagera National Park and Boat Cruise
    On arrival at the airport, our waiting driver-guide will meet and brief you on the 2-day Akagera National Park tour. We then transfer to the park on the 2.5-hour journey from Kigali. Alternatively, if you are already in Kigali, you will be picked up from your residence/hotel after breakfast and then taken on the journey, driving to the Kayonza district in the Eastern Province of Rwanda. The journey to Akagera National Park will reward you with planned en-route stopovers along the route. Feel free to ask your driver-guide questions about the wonderful scenery and even request photographic stopovers along the way. As you arrive at the park, you will check in to your booked safari accommodation at the lodge. You will then proceed for a sunset boat ride on Lake Ihema with a chance to see the aquatic mammals such as hippos and crocodiles in the lake or on the shores.
