Game drives are a highlight of your visit to the Savannah national parks while on your wildlife safaris. They provide the best way to explore the numerous national parks in the custom-made safari vehicles. In Rwanda, games drives are only done in Akagera National Park which has opportunities of sighting the different animals while in the comfort of the safari cars.
Akagera national parkis located in eastern Rwanda with great views of the plains and animal sightings. It hosts the entirety of Lake Ihema within its borders. The park is home to about 500 bird species and several mammals with the notable ones being Lions (recently re-introduced), Giraffes, Elephants, Bushbucks, Buffaloes and many more. The game drives mostly happen in the northern part of the park but the southern part equally has engagements.
