Akagera National Park offers the only traditional safari experience in Rwanda, and although the area does not host the wildlife abundance of Kenyan and Tanzanian parks, the sheer beauty of this area makes it worthy of consideration.
One third of this 1,200 km² park is made up of interlinking lakes and papyrus swamps – the remainder being savannah, lake-fringe forest and rolling highlands. Akagera is at a lower altitude than the rest of the country and hosts one of the highest concentrations of hippos in Africa.
Lions were re-introduced to Akagera in 2015 as part of a management plan for the park to bring back the Big Five. Other species found in Akagera include leopards, elephants, buffalos, hyenas, many antelope species and approximately 480 bird species.
We would prefer to hand-craft a safari to this area, just for you. Contact us to make an enquiry.
