Akagera National Park

Imagine endless grassy plains encircled by rugged cliffs and ravines with more than 12,000 of Africa’s largest animals and 482 bird species calling it home. The Akagera National Park is one of central Africa’s last-remaining refuges for endemic savannah wildlife in Rwanda and the largest protected wetland in the region. Under Ker & Downey® Africa’s conservation partner African Parks, 18 Eastern black rhinos are protected as they trample the ground, large prides of lions prowl their territory without a risk of being poached, and tourists are able to contribute to the continued conservation work undertaken by our partners. The biggest draw for adventurers visiting Akagera is the connectivity between the park and the local villages – the national park provides employment for local communities, who in turn are helping to introduce countless new wildlife species to Akagera each year.
