Introduction about this page
Where we are
Close to Kigali, Akagera is a convenient and beautiful park to visit. It can be a short getaway for those living in Rwanda, in combination with Nyungwe or an easy itinerary add-on before or after visiting the gorillas.
It’s a two-hour drive from Kigali to the Park’s main (southern access) gate. Also accessible by scheduled or charter helicopter. A 4×4 vehicle is recommended in the wet season
Thanks to reintroductions of lion (2015), eastern black rhino (2017) and southern white rhino (2021; the largest single rhino translocation to date), and good management, wildlife in Akagera is thriving.
Akagera has an extremely pleasant climate. Temperatures vary little throughout the year, remaining consistently warm during the day and cool at night.
