Akagera

Akagera National Park is central Africa’s largest protected wetland and the only region where you’ll find savannah-adapted wildlife in Rwanda. The park is a remarkable conservation effort, ongoing since 2010.

Why Akagera?
A bleak landscape less than just three decades ago, the Akagera National Park of today is home to some 12,000 thriving animals – including the plains game so closely associated with safaris like elephant, giraffe, antelope and lion. You can even spot rare southern white rhino in Akagera following a successful translocation of 30 rhino from South Africa in 2021.

Thanks to the grassy wetland environment, Akagera National Park is ideal for both open-vehicle and boating safaris. In true Rwanda fashion, the park is also spectacular for birdwatching with more than 500 species. Let yourself be inspired by the vast savannah landscapes and unforgettable sunsets of this truly unique slice of Rwanda.
  • A conservation success story that’s still being written.
  • Beautiful wetlands and sprawling savannahs.
  • Home to rare southern white rhino.
  • Spot elephant, lion, hippo, giraffe, zebra and more.
  • Over 500 species of birds.
  • Great for night and day game drives by vehicle or boat.
