Akagera National Park, Rwanda

Area: 1122 km2 – African Parks project since 2010

Managed by the Akagera Management Company – a joint entity between African Parks and the Rwanda Development Board
Akagera National Park is located in the north east of Rwanda along the border with Tanzania. It is named after the Akagera River that flows along its eastern boundary and feeds into a labyrinth of lakes of which the largest is Lake Ihema. The rolling hills of Acacia and Brachystegia Woodland coupled with scattered grassland and swamp-fringed lakes along the meandering Akagera watercourse combine to create a park of breathtaking scenic beauty.
