Akagera National Park


Akagera National Park is located in eastern Rwanda, on the Tanzania border. It encompasses an area of 1,122 sq. km. and is situated in a relatively warm and low-lying area of expansive savannah and acacia woodlands. The eastern section of the park supports an extensive wetland and a complex of lakes linked by the Akagera River.

The park is Africa’s largest protected wetland region and the last remaining haven for the savannah-adapted species in Rwanda. Rwanda Safari Tours here put on display the varied wildlife concentrations and a range of safari activities.

Akagera National Park is the only big five reserve in Rwanda, meaning that you can spot lions, elephants, leopards, buffaloes, and rhinos all on a single Rwanda Safari.
