Akagera National Park
The relatively warm and low-lying plains of Akagera comprise savannah, woodland, wetland and a dozen lakes. In partnership with African Parks, we aim to transform the National Park into a world-class location to experience a safari.
The largely open expanse is ideal for game viewing, and we are taking steps to ensure the Big Five roam the park in greater numbers over the course of time.
Since 2010, significant efforts have been made to drastically reduce poaching, achieving an unprecedented decrease. This accomplishment has been realized through the implementation of various measures such as the addition of a helicopter, a dedicated canine unit, and skilled rhino trackers.
A family of lions hailing from South Africa has not only acclimatized well to their new surroundings but also managed to thrive and reproduce successfully. Moreover, a successful reintroduction program has seen the return of 18 eastern black rhinos to their natural habitat.
For visitors, a captivating array of wildlife awaits, including buffalo, elephants, antelope, zebras, giraffes, baboons, monkeys, an astonishing variety of 490 bird species, and more.
Exploration of the park is exclusively done via vehicles, either through guided tours or self-driving options. Additionally, the National Park offers vehicle rental services, allowing individuals to partake in night drives.
It is highly advisable to take advantage of the expertise of guides, who can be conveniently booked through the park itself.
For those seeking an immersive experience, accommodations are available within the park’s lodges, a temporary bush camp in the northern region during specific timeframes, and designated camping sites.
