Akagera National Park – Rwanda Safari Holidays
Akagera National Park is located in the eastern region of Rwanda. . This is one of the most popular Rwanda safari destinations in Africa in addition to Volcanoes National park that is famous for mountain gorilla trekking and Nyungwe forest for canopy walk and primate tracking.
The park covers over 250 km2 of Savannah, west of the Kagera River, which denotes the frontier with Tanzania. The park has a variety of wildlife and is a habitat for over 500 different species of birds. Akagera is, above all, big game country! Herds of elephant and buffalo emerge from the woodland to drink at the lakes, while lucky visitors might stumble across a leopard, a spotted hyena or even a stray lion.

Dominated scenically by the labyrinth of swamps and lakes that follow the meandering course of the Akagera River, the most remote source of the Nile, this is an archetypal African Savannah landscape of tangled acacia woodland interspersed with open grassland.
