Akagera National Park

The distinctly heat and low-lying plains of Akagera incorporate savannah, woodland, wetland and a dozen lakes.

In partnership with African Parks, we goal to radically change the National Park into a world-class place to trip a safari.
The generally open expanse is perfect for sport viewing, and we are taking steps to make sure the Big Five roam the park in larger numbers over the path of time.

Since 2010 we have cut poaching to an all time low, with the introduction of a helicopter, a canine unit and rhino trackers.

A family of lions from South Africa is settling in well, and breeding successfully, and 18 eastern black rhinos have also been reintroduced.

Visitors can also encounter buffalo, elephant, antelope, zebra, giraffe, baboons, monkeys, an incredible 490 bird species, plus much more.

A boat trip on Lake Ihema is also a highlight of any visit to Akagera, with its large pods of hippos, Nile crocodiles and abundant waterbirds on the island in the middle of the lake.

The only way to explore the park is by vehicle, whether through a tour operator or self drive. The National Park also has a vehicle to hire, with individual spaces available on night drives.

It is recommended to take up the services of a guide, which can be booked through the park.

Sleeping within the park is possible, at various lodges, a bush camp in the north at select periods, or camping in specific sites.
