Lake Ihema Boat Trips in Akagera National Park

A boat cruise is  the nicest way to explore the secrets of Akagera National Park while on your Rwanda tours. The park authorities can organize a boat trip on Lake Ihema to see the hippo pods and some of the huge Nile crocodiles that inhabit the lake.

For bird watching enthusiasts, a boat cruise in Akagera National Park is a must. It offers a great opportunity to view the park’s abundant water birds, including swamp flycatchers, African fishing eagles, African darters and breeding colonies of noisy and smelly cormorants and open-bill storks.

Reservation should be made through the park office at least an hour or so in advance.

The park offers scheduled morning/day boat trip (depart at 7:30 am, and 9 am), scheduled sunset trip (depart at 4:30 pm), and private non scheduled boat trip.

One-hour tours cost for the scheduled morning boat trip is US$35 per person, scheduled sunset trip cost US$45 for 1 hour and private non-scheduled boat trip cost US$ 180 per person.

The boat carries a maximum of 11 people.
