Inside Rwanda’s Only Big Five Reserve
A Big Five Sanctury
Akagera National Park is in the northeast of Rwanda and is central Africa’s largest protected wetland. Situated along the border with Tanzania, this 112, 000-hectare reserve is the only Big Five sanctuary and the last remaining refuge for savannah-adapted species in Rwanda. Under the management of African Parks, Akagera has returned to its former glory and is home to the Big Five and nearly 500 bird species including the Shoebill and Papyrus Gonolek.
