Akagera National Park in Rwanda is a success story in the making – where wildlife conservation, tourism and community upliftment are one and the same.
My fascination with the Akagera National Park goes back to the years that I spent living in Tanzania. For one thing, I could never quite envisage a savannah park in Rwanda, which to me was a country of mountains and forests. However, I soon gained a fascinating insight into Africa’s largest protected wetland, home to the last of the savannah-adapted species in Rwanda.
On World Rhino Day, African Parks shared the exciting news that a rhino calf has been born in Akagera National Park in Rwanda – the first wild rhino birth for over a decade.
