    The hippos are always sunning in the water of the lakes and the rangers know where to see them. A little walk to the marshy waters edge is just as delightful even if you dont seee any but dont fear the hungry hippos will be there. They eat swim sleep and swim again...what a life!

    One of the attracitons of the park is the wild elelphant who was actually brought up and tamed by the 'elephant man'...his keeper who is a fisherman near the fihing station onLake Ihema. The large mammal is moody and should not be approached without the park rangers guidance...i forgot the ellies name, but i am sure he didn't forget mine!

    kayonza street scene

    78km east of Kigali you reach the literally juntion town of Kayonza. The circle has signs pointing to uganda and tanzania in opposite directions and adds that wild frontier feel to the place. there is accomodation at the aumbebhazi hotel just on the circle, basic but there if you need it.
    if you visit duirng Market day which is largest on tuesday the Marche area just north of the centre 200m is a hive of activity and opportunity to see rural life upclose.......great if you are there, but dont detour

    Banana beer, boil banana and GOAT!

    by nsbm Updated Jun 30, 2005

    The grounds of the Aumbembhazi hotel are a relaxing stop on the way to Akagera. The gondolas in the garden each have tables and chairs and are named after the countries that border rwanda with the flag and respective capitals!
    On the grounds they also have a banana reed thatched traditional hut that you can peer into...interesting

    Favorite Dish: Here they will cook up a fresh grilled and skewed goat kebab or goat intestines kebab (like well done lamb, not game odoured and very hygienic) served with fresh boil-fry bananas yummy!!!
    This is watered down with the locally bottled banana beer (or banana wine as it is also called)...quite nice.
    Remember banana is a good purgative so go easy on the liquid type, trust me I'm a doctor! he hee
