Akagera National Park is located in the northeast of Rwanda along the border with Tanzania. A joint venture with African Parks has seen Akagera become one of Africa's greatest conservation stories. The forest-fringed lakes, papyrus swamps, savannah plains and rolling highlands combine to make Akagera amongst the most scenic of reserves anywhere in Africa. It has exceptional levels of biodiversity and forms the largest protected wetland in central Africa. Black rhinos and lions were reintroduced to Akagera in 2017, restoring the park's ‘Big 5’ status.
