Amazing time in Akagera with Gaspard!
The trip to Akagera National park was one of the highlights of my trip to Rwanda. Home Rwanda Safaris took care of all the details, our amazing driver and guide Gaspard, was not only extremely knowledgeable but also very friendly and helpful, enjoyed learning from him not only about the park but also about Rwanda culture! We spend one night at the park and spend the next morning going to the lake and another drive around. We were lucky to see quite a variety of animals (including elephants!!!). Everything was organized very well and we didn't have to worry about anything. Highly recommend Hotel Rwanda Safaris and thank you again Gaspard for your amazing work!

Amazing weekend in Akagera National Park with Home Rwanda Safari
My friend is visiting Rwanda for the first time, and had never been on a safari before, so we decided to head for Akagera National Park for two days (with one night overnight in the park). Since I had never been there before and don't have a car, I decided to find a travel service that would take care of everything for us. We had an amazing experience, and Home Rwanda Safari did an excellent job planning everything! Aimable was very quick to reply and answer any questions that I had about the booking, and payment was easy. For the actual time in the park, Gaspard was an excellent driver and guide who was incredibly kind and genuine. Since he had worked in the park himself, he knew everyone there and was very knowledgeable about the park. The van that we took was great! It had a pop up top, which allowed us to cruise around standing up and get amazing views of the wildlife. We saw zebra, antelope, giraffes, elephants, baboons, and so many birds. No lions, but it wasn't for lack of trying. The overall package was a good value, with pickup and drop off from Kigali, entrance to the park, a full day game drive all around the park on Saturday, a night at the lodge, the boat safari Sunday morning (definitely worth it for the many birds, hippos, crocodiles, and two elephants that came down to the lake to drink), and another half day game drive before heading back to Kigali Sunday afternoon all included. I would highly recommend this service!

Affordable and trusted Safaris Company
It was amazing to be hosted by Home Rwanda Safaris discovering Rwanda, at our arrival we welcomed by Aimable who is the best tour guide we ever met in Rwanda and he gave us a briefing about the country, tour and what we expected in the hole tour day to day. The second day of our visit in the volcanoes national park we were tracking the amazing Gorillas and we were happy to see them, a bit scared haha but the trek was unbelievable. The guide took us to the community cooperative (local people and ex-poachers) in Musanze which was not in the package we thank him for that. We cannot wait to recommend this company for their great services, helpful and professional guides. We will be back, promised

Recommendable Safari Operator
We had a customised one-day tour in Akagera National Park. During the booking process, Aimable, a representative of the operator, was very accommodating and understanding. Both our pick-up and drop-off were arranged at our convenience. Gaspard, the driver, was friendly and knowledgeable about the park. Although the weather wasn't in our favour in the morning, we could see relatively many wild animals as it gradually became sunny. Plus, the afternoon boat trip (15:00-16:00) was amazing. We saw hippos, crocodiles, and a large diversity of birds. The captain of the boat gave us a very informed explanation about different species. I highly recommend this boat trip in Akageral National Park, which provides a unique experience that you can't have in many other national parks. Overall, I'm satisfied with Home Rwanda Safaris' services. I'd recommend this operator to anyone, especially those interested in doing customised tours in Rwanda.

Drei Tage Akagera Nationalpark
Wir haben mit Home Rwanda Safaris eine sehr gute Erfahrung gemacht. Um einen vernünftigen Preis wurde uns sehr viel geboten: Full day, half day und night game drive; boat tour und Unterkunft und Verpflegung in der Akagera Game Lodge. Unser Driver/Guide Gaspard war pünktlich, zuverlässig und kompetent. Er hatte stets ein offenes Ohr für unsere vielen Fragen und brachte uns so die Tier- und Pflanzenwelt des Nationalparks näher und erzählte uns auch viel zur Geschichte und Kultur Rwandas. Alles in allem eine sehr positive und schöne Erfahrung! Absolut empfehlenswert!!
