Wildlife in Akagera

Akagera National Park is a protected region in eastern Rwanda that spans 1,122 square kilometers (433 square miles) near the country’s border with Tanzania. It was established in 1934 and has savannah, montane, and swamp ecosystems. The park takes its name from the Kagera River, which flows along its eastern edge and feeds Lake Ihema and numerous smaller lakes. Over a third of the park is made up of a complex system of lakes and linked papyrus swamps, making it the biggest protected wetland in Eastern-Central Africa.
