Things to Do in the Parks

Things To Do In Volcanos National Park

When most tourists hear about Rwanda’s Volcanoes National Park, what comes in their minds are Mountain gorillas and gorilla trekking safaris. However, there is more to this Park than meets the eye.

With such phenomenal attractions, Volcanoes National Park is undoubtedly a haven to numerous tourist activities that include;

Gorilla trekking

Being one of the four Protected Areas in the World that offer shelter to these critically endangered primates, gorilla trekking is undeniably the key tourist activity that draws thousands of tourists from all parts of the Globe.


Fascinating Activities To Enjoy With In Akagera National Park

There are also numerous tourist activities to enjoy and they include;

Day and Night Game Drives

Conducted in the company of knowledgeable guides, game drives are probably the main tourist activity within this magnificent National Park, thus the best place to encounter Elephants, Buffaloes, Rhinos, several species of Antelopes, Masai giraffes, Burchell’s zebras, warthogs, some primate species, side-striped jackals, several mongoose species and warthogs among others. Instead of the usual day game drives, you can actually undertake a night/nocturnal game drive to encounter the Park’s nocturnal animals such as civets, spotted hyenas, Serval cats, lions, leopards and many others.

Nature walks

Just like game drives, nature walks allow tourists to explore the different wildlife, stunning landscape and tree species within Akagera National Park, of course in an exceptional way. This activity is conducted on foot hence offering tourists with a closer encounter with nature.
