Akagera NP

Our last few days in Rwanda are going to be spent under canvas - taking our little tent into the Akagera National Park.  This was at one time one of Africa's great safari destinations - but the genocide forced refugees into the park, with a consequently devastating effect on the wildlife in the area.

However it is now starting to be regenerated, and with a bit of luck we may get a bit of a more traditional type safari - with the added bonus of having no-one else around.  It seems that you can wild camp in the park, but I'm not sure Karen is going to be up for that!  Not after we found lion tracks beside our tent in the Central Kalahari.

Still it has rave reviews from other visitors, mainly for the peace and quiet rather than the lions.
