Welcome to Akagera National Park

Akagera National Park

Located on the Rwandan border with Tanzania, Akagera National Park encompasses savannah, mountain and swamp ecoregions across its 463 square miles (1,200 sq km) of territory. The savannah areas are the most popular for safaris, with an abundance of big game including elephants, zebra, buffalo, giraffe, oribi and impala. Camping alongside the lakes is a good way to spot birds like fish eagles, papyrus gonolek, and the elusive shoebill stork.

Information & Facts

Kinyarwanda, French and English are the official languages. French is widely spoken, but English is limited to a few people in the tourist centres.

The official currency is the Rwanda franc (RWF), which is divided into 100 centimes. The US dollar is the hard currency of preference; travellers cheques are difficult to exchange, even in the capital. Credit cards are only accepted at the major hotels in Kigali.

Local time is GMT +2.
