Akagera Park

Strategically situated along the Rwanda-Tanzania border in eastern Rwanda covering up to 1122 square km is Akagera national park- Rwanda’s oldest and most popular wildlife reserve founded as early as 1934. The park was named after the Kagera river that flows along the park’s eastern boundary. Akagera has one of the largest protected wetlands in East & Central Africa with numerous papyrus swamps and lakes making up over a third of the park. The park is home to over 8000 wildlife animals plus up to 525 bird species but what’s most interesting about Akagera is that you can find all the iconic Big 5 in the park with lions and Rhinos introduced a few ago.

Getting There – the road trip from Kigali city to Akagera park lasts about 2 and half hours using the Akagera road.
