Tailor-made Akagera National Park Holidays

In the land of a thousand hills, Akagera’s wide-open landscapes are an unexpected treasure. The low-lying, stretching-for-ever plains of this ravishingly beautiful national park, which hugs the border with Tanzania, are a glorious mosaic of habitats. Strung out along the meandering course of the Kagera River, you’ll find boundless lakes that are home to hippos, Nile crocodiles and a host of different waterbirds, and wetlands where swaying papyrus reeds provide a hiding place for the endangered shoebill stork. Lurking in the acacia woods or roaming the savannah grasslands are all the majestic members of the Big Five – lions, leopards, bush elephants, black rhinos and Cape buffalo – along with giraffes, warthogs, a dozen types of antelopes and more.

Looking at it now, it’s hard to believe that just two decades ago the park was overrun by cattle and on the brink of being lost forever to farmland. Its dramatic turnaround, thanks to the joint efforts of African Parks and the Rwanda Development Board, has made it a heart-warming poster child for enlightened conservation. The reintroduced lions and Eastern black rhinos are thriving, other wildlife has returned of its own accord, and the 300,000 people who live around its edge benefit from the park’s various income-generating enterprises.

To experience Akagera’s inspiring story and landscapes for yourself, talk to our Africa gurus about making a stay here part of your dream Rwanda holiday.
