Akagera National Park is located in the southwest part of Rwanda on the border with Tanzania. It is the largest park in the country and covers over 2,000 square miles of land.

Mount Ihema is the highest point in the park and provides a breathtaking view out over the surrounding plains. The national park is a popular destination for hikers and photographers as well as tourists looking to enjoy safari tours in Rwanda.

Volcanoes National Park is another popular destination for wildlife and hiking enthusiasts. It is located in the east of the country in the Virunga Mountains on the border with the Democratic Republic of Congo. The park contains nine volcanoes and over 100 different types of mammals and birds. It provides visitors with the opportunity to see rare mountain gorillas in their natural habitat. One of the most iconic features of the park is the endangered golden monkey, which has been placed on the list of critically endangered species by the International Union for Conservation of Nature. The park is an important source of scientific research and a center of conservation for the endangered species found in the area. A visit to Volcanoes National Park this holiday will provide an unforgettable wildlife experience and allow visitors the chance to see the exotic flora and fauna of Rwanda up close.

A third destination worth visiting on a wildlife safari in Rwanda is Lake Kivu located on the border between Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The lake is the largest freshwater lake in Africa and offers visitors a number of opportunities for water-based activities. Visitors can take part in boat tours or rent a kayak to explore the lake independently. Fishing is also a popular activity on the lake and visitors are often treated to the sight of schools of colourful fish swimming near the surface or leaping out of the water to escape predators. As most of the lake’s shores are undeveloped it is a perfect place for those looking to get away from the crowds and enjoy a peaceful getaway.
