Akagera National Park Rwanda Safaris
12 different species of antelopes live within the park; the cute chestnut coated impalas are the most commonly seen although even the very small oribi as well as the tsessebe and the secretive bushbucks, in addition to the eland which is the largest antelope in the world can all be seen within Akagera National Park. We recommend our visitor to Camp alongside the beautiful Akagera Lake as this is a genuinely mystical introduction to the amazing wonders of Nature within this African bush. Groups of about 50 hippos groan and play in the shallows of the lake throughout the entire day while crocodiles soak in the sun by the lake shore with their huge jaws threateningly opened. The stillness of the area is broken by the memorable echoes of a high duet of fish eagles, making known their status as the crowned heads of the waterways of Africa. the shores of the lakes crowded with one of the biggest flock of water birds in Africa, as the nearby swamps are home to the beautiful yet decreasing in number papyrus gonolek, as well as the uncommon peculiar shoebill stork (which is among the most sought after bird species on the African continent).
