Akagera National Park, the only Big Five Reserve in Rwanda, offers guests a truly exceptional wildlife experience. Guests have the chance to see rare species including the Shoebill and Sitatunga.

Akagera Game Lodge stands on a hill at the southern tip of the Akagera National Park elevated above the savannah with exceptional views of Lake Ihema. With 60 rooms, a conference center, restaurant, and bar – Akagera Game Lodge is the perfect home base while conferencing or exploring the conservation treasures of Akagera National Park. Your journey begins today.
