Akagera National Park

Established in 1934, the Akagera National Park is gaining popularity and asserting itself as Rwanda’s Big 5 game park.

It is located on the north-eastern edge of Rwanda, bordering Tanzania, and incorporates the Kagera River, hence its name Akagera.

The park serves to protect animals and vegetation in three habitats: savannah, mountain and swamp. Focusing on “big game”, Akagera currently includes African Elephant, Buffalo, Zebra, Giraffe and a variety of antelope. Plans to re-stock the park with Lions and Rhinos are at an advanced stage.
