    Impalas are abundant in Akagera. This antilope is characterized by the black and white lines on her tail. Impalas can jump up to 4 meters height and 11 meters long. They did not seem very shy to us.

Watching you!

Hippos stay in the water all day long and come out around sunset to eat. They are herbivore even though they have intimidating teeth! At birth a baby hippo weight around 50 kg. An adult hippo weighs around 3 tons!! I wouldn't want THAT to charge me!!
