Getting There & Away

While in theory it's possible to get close to the park by public transport, Akagera is really only accessible for those with their own transport. Safari and tour companies in Kigali can arrange a vehicle with a driver or you can simply hire your own and self drive – a far cheaper option.

Although Akagera can be reached in about two hours from Kigali and is a feasible day trip from the capital, it does make sense to spend at least a night in the park to make the most of your trip.
