5 Days Rwanda Wildlife Discovery Safari Overview

These 5 Days Rwanda Wildlife Discovery Safari allow you to see the game, bird watching, nature walks, and boat trips in Akagera National Park. This charming park is surrounded by mountains and open grassy valleys with bushes, forests, and fertile wetlands. This is the only place of its kind in Rwanda and the best place to see a large herd of hippos. Although a visit to the Presidential Museum will give you an insight into the tragedy of April 6, 1994, when President Habyarimana’s plane was shot down, it is still a museum and is included in a trip to Rwanda, a landmark project.
