Akagera Adventuring

Turns out the misery of exams transcends borders, so the IPRC BMET students were unable to meet today. Instead, we decided to research another important group of stakeholders – the wildlife of Akagera National Park.

After waking up at 4 A.M and a 2.5 hour drive, we reached the southern part of the park. Dry season meant that most of the animals were in the northern region, another 3 hours away. Enough text, here are the amateur photographs!


A list of some of what we saw:

  • Topi Antelope
  • Impala “McDonalds” Antelope
  • Waterbuck Antelope
  • Baboons with gnarly butts
  • Monkeys
  • Horseflies. So many Horseflies.
  • Hippos
  • Crazy Elephant
  • A lot of running Warthogs
  • Zebras, including an angsty teen zebra who had redish stripes
  • Something something chicken
  • Water Buffalo
  • Other random birds
