White Rhino Tracking in Akagera National Park

White Rhino Tracking In Akagera National Park

White Rhino Tracking in Akagera National Park is just one of the many exciting wildlife encounters that a safari in Rwanda can provide. This is a hands-on tour offering a fantastic chance to see rhinos in their natural habitat. While monitoring rhinos in Akagera National Park, visitors go along with the rhino trackers. Photographs and notes regarding the health and behaviour of rhinos are taken during the trip. Akagera National Park is the only park in Rwanda where visitors may witness elephants, buffaloes, lions, leopards, and rhinoceros as well as other large species in the savanna grassland.

The recently established Rwanda safari activity of rhino tracking takes place in the vast Kilala Plains on the park’s northern border, in Akagera National Park. Towards the end of 2021, Akagera received almost 30 white rhinos. The goal of bringing rhinos into Akagera National Park is to secure their survival in the future.

White Rhino Tracking in Akagera National Park

Visitors can follow white rhinos early in the morning by walking safari with the rhino trackers team through the stunning wildness over the scenic Kilala plains inside the Akagera National Park. It is the team’s responsibility to keep an eye on the rhinos’ well-being and safety at the same time. This ensures guests will witness the rarely seen rhinoceros inside Akagera National Park, in addition to other wildlife including elephants, lions, buffaloes, antelopes, zebras, giraffes, and numerous bird species among other wonderful game species in the savannah plains of Akagera.

The cost of White Rhino Tracking in Akagera National Park is $75 per person. Currently, the activity allows a maximum of 4 guests/tourists to join the rhino trackers team on foot as they stroll over the savannah plains to watch the rhinoceros. Being the only savannah national park in Rwanda, Akagera National Park also provides other amazing opportunities to see wildlife, such as day and night game drives, boat trips on Lake Ihema, fishing, walk-in experiences, camping experiences, behind-the-scenes tours, and community cultural experiences. These activities increase the likelihood of seeing wildlife inside Akagera National Park.

Rhino Tracking

Tracking white rhinos at Kilala will make it simpler for people to see them because the majority of them are grazers. Unlike black rhinos, who are mostly browsers, they consume leaves from trees. Unlike their white counterparts, black rhinos live in the southern part of Akagera National Park. In the southern part of Akagera, forests and acacia woodlands are the main land uses.

The translocation of white rhinos, which are one of the Big Five mammals of Africa, into the vast savannah plains and breathtaking wilderness of Akagera National Park has resulted in the introduction of a new and exciting tourist activity: tracking white rhinos in Akagera National Park. This activity offers a greater chance of seeing the rhinoceros on a guided walking safari with rhino trackers monitoring these game species.
