Akagera Game Lodge is a moderately better-budget priced lodge and one thing is for sure – one could easily call it a Holiday Inn in the Bush with over 50 rooms- the key word is affordable and one could add comfortable enough with en-suite bathrooms, writing desk, TV, swimming pool, tennis court and more. Akagera Game Lodge overlooking Lake Ihema and the savannah that is all around – the dining area and bar also overlook Lake Ihema and the surrounding such as the savannah.
This means sleeping in the park with completely nothing between you and the animals but just a thin sheet of super nylon and this is an exciting adventure and it’s so fair to Akagera Park. However, be aware of the roaming gangs of the baboons. These are so cheeky and will also do their best of stealing the food as well as terrorizing you since they are jerks and have got weird bums. Also spending the night around the campfire with friends, beers as well as the open sky which also makes a good break from the city life and is also one of the best overnight or weekend tours that can be done in Rwanda. There are also three campsites with the one in the north at Mutumba and it’s known as the most fantastic camp. Camping also costs $20 per person per night and the park can always rent you 6 person tent for an extra $ 20 per person and this is for the two southern campsites. The campsites don’t have any other gear and make sure to always bring yours. Both campsites are well equipped with the BBQ and the firewood is provided and there is also a pit latrine and small shelter. The views at the campsites are so great and you can camp in the park with the wild animals that roam in the bush and this is so pretty cool.
