AKAGERA NATIONAL PARK

Excellent safari destination

Akagera National Park

Akagera National Park stretches across a vast expanse of low-lying mountains and savannah plains, taking in the lakes and wetlands of the Kagera River along the way. Crocodiles and hippos wallow in the park’s watery basins, predators prowl through its acacia groves, and elephant, zebra, giraffe, buffalo and other animals roam across its grassy plains.

Best time to travel to Akagera National Park

Like the rest of the climate in Rwanda, Akagera Park has two dry seasons: the long dry season runs from June through September, which is the best time to visit), while the short dry season lasts from mid-December to mid-February.

Wildlife

Akagera national park is Rwanda’s only Big 5 park and is home to a variety of wildlife which include, elephants, buffalos, giraffe, zebras, leopards, hyenas, lions. It is home to several antelopes like bushbucks, Topis, Oribis, waterbuck, roan antelope and duiker, klipspringer, impala, and world largest antelope – the eland.
