Akagera National Park – 22/07/18

The team got off to an early start on our last Sunday together as we set off for our safari adventure at Akagera National Park. For most of the group, it was their first time on an African safari, and it was a pleasure to experience this as a whole team.

Our bus driver, Gratien, led the way through Akagera as we learned about the park from our on-board guide. Despite being warned beforehand that lion and elephant sightings were rare, we were unbelievably fortunate to come within 10 metres of an elephant followed by getting as close as we wanted to come to 3 lions. We watched in awe as the elephant followed our bus and disappeared into the bushes – a once in a lifetime experience. The guide also informed us that lion sightings are so rare and he was just as excited as us to come so close to the beautiful animals.

After a quick lunch stop at “Hippo Lake”, we watched zebras, giraffes and antelopes in their natural habitat. Other animals we seen included crocodiles, warthogs, topi, storks and buffalo. The 6 hour excitement-filled safari was exhausting for the team, majority of whom fell asleep on the return journey. 

The safari was an unforgettable day for all.
