Akagera National Park

Rwanda's last remaining refuge for the Big 5

Akagera National Park is Central Africa’s largest protected wetland and a last-of-its-kind sanctuary for savannah-adapted animal species in Rwanda. A revival success story, Akagera has been transformed into an income-generating park that benefits the local communities and proliferates wildlife populations. With its name originating from the Kagera River, this wildlife reserve is predominantly made up of swamps and lakes located in north-eastern Rwanda at the Tanzanian border. Displaying classic Rwandan scenery, its astonishing ecosystem encompasses rolling hills, extensive plains, and varying forests inhabited by diverse wildlife, especially large mammals and bountiful birdlife.

What our travellers are saying

Because of the easy way we communicated with our Viatu expert, it felt like planning our holidays with a friend. It made it really flexible and perfectly suitable for our needs. The accommodations that he suggested were just wonderful and a perfect mix of everything we needed.

We had an incredible journey with Viatu and many unforgettable memories in South Africa. The journey was tailor-made to our wishes and the communication with Alex really easy, friendly and helpful. All the information was accessible online at any time, nicely presented and structured in an overview.

I'm very thankful for my first Viatu experience. The 3-week trip across Namibia combined incredible landscapes and nature, mindblowing eco-friendly lodges and utter peace of mind. The organisation and support of the Viatu team were spot-on - this is the way to impress. Thanks a lot!

We loved using the Viatu Trip Builder to design our holidays in South Africa. It was super easy and transparent. Our holidays were great and the few times we needed support, our consultant Benoit was very quick and helpful.
