Akagera covers 2500 km² of savannah, west of the Kagera River, in northeast Rwanda. The park has a variety of wildlife and is a habitat for over 500 different species of birds.

Learn About the Batwa People
We all meet for breakfast before embarking on a tour of the Batwa Pygmy tribe. This tour involves quite a bit of walking.
They have been living, gathering and hunting in the rainforest for over 500,000 years. Their lifestyle is a sustainable one that does not harm the forest, and their shelters do not disturb the environment.
Uganda is helping these indigenous people to keep their culture and traditions alive following there eviction from the forest over two decades ago.
During the conflict between the Bantu and the Bwata, they Bwata retreated deep into the forest to a cave called the Garama Cave measuring 342 meters long. Your guide will explain how they lived and fought from this cave.
After breakfast, drive to Kigali and visit the Genocide Memorial Center.
The Kigali Genocide Memorial honors the memory of the more than one million people killed during the 1994 genocide, through education and peace-building initiatives.
Later, transfer to Kigali Airport, making sure you check in three hours before your departure time. We wish you pleasant travels!
