Waking up in Akagera National Park is a lot of things but one thing it's not is quiet. Oh yes - it's a wilderness experience, the likes of which you're not likely to find in many safari countries these days, because as yet the vast crowds of tourists of the rest of East Africa have yet to discover this little gem. But quiet it is not. You won't hear planes flying over or cars and buses roaring past. You won't have that pulsing, omnipresent background noise of the city. You wake up to the sound of hundreds, perhaps thousands of native bees!
