Akagera National Park

Akagera National Park Set at a relatively low altitude on the border with Tanzania, Akagera National Park comprises approximately 2.3 % of the country of Rwanda and is different in mood to the breezy cultivated hills that characterize the majority of Rwanda. Dominated scenically by the labyrinth of swamps and lakes that follow the meandering course of the Akagera River, the most remote source of the Nile, this is archetypal African savannah landscape. It represents the confluence of several vegetation zones and as a result exhibits an unusually high diversity of associated animals, plants, and scenery comprised of lakes, swamps, savannah, plains, and dry forest. It is approximately 386 square miles in size, and is home to more than 540...


Kigali Kigali is the capital of Rwanda and its most important city. It's mainly an administrative centre and even before the civil war in Rwanda there wasn't really a lot to do and see. There is a crafts market in the centre of the city, as well as a Muslim Quarter replete with a nice mosque. In the city, you can visit the genocide memorial and the Hotel Milles Collines, places relating to the 1994 War. There are a few other memorials in the city as well.

Ruhengeri Ruhengeri is about two hours from Kigali and is the base for going trekking with the Gorillas at the Parc National des Volcans. The town itself is not all that interesting but it does have great views of the surrounding volcanoes and offers a number of treks as well as the gorillas. There are a couple of cheap hotels down town and a more upmarket hotel past the ORTPN office. The ORTPN office which is in the prefecture is the place to go to try and arrange a gorilla permit if you don't already have one. They will not be able to tell you about the next day till after 4pm as it depends on Kigali. The tours now start at the entrance of the parc 12 kms from Ruhengeri in the village of Kinigi. To get there you either need...
