Akagera National Park

-

The relatively warm and low-lying plains of Akagera comprise savannah, woodland, wetland and a dozen lakes. The largely open expanse is ideal for game viewing. 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 swamps and lakes of Akagera National Park make up the largest protected wetland area in central Africa and this is a bird-lovers paradise. Many rare species are attracted to the unique marshland including large flocks of waterbirds, the endangered papyrus gonolek, the shoebill stork and the majestic fish eagle.
