The second day of your three-day trip to Akagera National Park begins with an early morning game drive in anticipation of seeing various animals that awaken early to graze and predators searching for their early morning kill, particularly the big cats like the leopard, lions, and other carnivores. Numerous herbivores, including rhinos, elephants, gazelles, oribi, and other exciting game animals, can be seen grazing on the plains.

You will return to your accommodation after the morning game drives for refreshments before being transferred to the evening game drive later that day.
