Akagera National Park

Akagera National Park is located in the east of the country, on the border with Tanzania. Park got its name after the Kager River. Back in the first half of the last century, it was considered one of the most beautiful in Africa and the whole world, primarily because of its fauna. The situation changed at the end of the 1990es. After the return of refugees, new villages were founded on the outskirts of the park, and due to great poverty, there was strong poaching. The situation improved by strict law introducing, and after 2015 when populations of lions and black rhinos were reintroduced. Pre-war tourist facilities have been renovated and additional ones have been built, which shows that this park has a lot to offer to a large number of visitors.
