Akagera Safari and Relaxation!

We have spent the last few days relaxing and going on a safari at Akagera National Park. Akagera is the oldest national park in Africa and is the easternmost point in Rwanda. We stayed in the beautiful Akagera Game Lodge; that may have been the nicest hotel I’ve ever stayed in. We spend the afternoon by the pool and after dinner, we went on an evening safari. During the evening safari, we saw zebra, impala, giraffe, hippos, and many other animals. After a quick sleep, we spent the next day on six-hour safari that traveled the whole distance of the park. We saw many animals but the most impressive was one of the seven lions that reside at Akagera. It was a dream come to safari in Africa and I really couldn’t be any happier.  Rwanda is really showing me how fortunate I am.
