Camping at Akagera National Park

We went camping this past weekend with Mike and his housemates plus another 50 of their friends at Akagera National Park! The park is located a few hours east of Kigali on the Tanzanian border. Game viewing is not comparable to the Serengeti, but we did see a bunch of hippos in the lake near the campsite as well as several baboons and monkeys on our drive. We had so much fun that I might even consider camping again (I had previously put a moratorium on camping post-Kilimanjaro). I was super impressed with some of the master-campers in the group. Stephanie (one of Mike’s housemates) even whipped up chocolate chip banana pancakes over a campfire for breakfast for everyone – yum! Some photos below.
