Akagera National Park is a stunning protected area located in the eastern part of Rwanda, along the country’s border with Tanzania. Covering an area of approximately 1,122 square kilometers, Akagera is Rwanda’s largest national park and one of the most diverse and scenic wilderness areas in the country.

Akagera National Park encompasses a diverse range of ecosystems, including savannah grasslands, woodlands, wetlands, lakes, and swamps. This diversity of habitats supports a rich variety of wildlife, including mammals, birds, reptiles, and amphibians.

Big Five Safari

Akagera National Park is known for its impressive wildlife sightings, including the « Big Five » (lion, elephant, buffalo, leopard, and rhinoceros). While rhinos were reintroduced to the park in 2017 after a 10-year absence, the other members of the Big Five have long been resident in the park, making it one of the few places in East Africa where visitors can see all five iconic species.

Game Drives

Game drives are the primary activity for visitors to Akagera National Park, offering the opportunity to explore the park’s diverse landscapes and encounter its abundant wildlife. Guided game drives are available in open-top safari vehicles, led by experienced rangers and guides who provide insights into the park’s ecology, history, and wildlife behavior.


Boat Safaris

Akagera National Park is bisected by the scenic Akagera River, which flows through the park’s eastern boundary and forms a network of lakes and wetlands. Boat safaris along the Akagera River offer a unique perspective on the park’s wildlife, allowing visitors to see animals such as hippos, crocodiles, and water birds up close.


Akagera National Park is a paradise for birdwatchers, with over 500 bird species recorded within its boundaries. The park’s wetlands and waterways support a diverse array of birdlife, including herons, storks, ibises, eagles, and kingfishers, making it one of the best birdwatching destinations in Rwanda.

Akagera National Park has undergone significant restoration and conservation efforts in recent years, including habitat restoration, anti-poaching measures, and reintroduction programs for endangered species. These efforts have led to a resurgence in wildlife populations and biodiversity, making Akagera a success story for conservation in Rwanda and East Africa.
