Another interesting and unique way to see the wildlife in the park is on boat trips. Akagera National Park offers thrilling boat trips on the lakes during which you will be able to see some animals such as giant hippos and crocodiles in the shallow waters. These trips will offer you a closer view of these animals that love water. Occasionally you may see some buffaloes and a few antelopes on the shores which would have come to drink water.
There are also plenty of water birds you will be able to see during these boat trips. So always remember to carry your camera as you set out for these thrilling trips.
To best see most of the animals within the park, we recommend that you take a full day trip or a 2 days trip in the park, considering that it is not very far from the capital city Kigali. However for those who would prefer to sleep within the park there are a number of accommodation options such as Akagera Game Lodge that offer great facilities and services.
