AKAGERA PARK: THE LAST REMAINING REFUGE FOR SAVANNAH SPECIES

by Emmanuel Kwizera

Akagera National Park is Central Africa’s largest protected woodland and the last remaining refuge for savannah-adapted species in Rwanda.

Akagera is almost unrecognizable today compared to just 20 years ago when it was on the verge of being lost forever.

Some species disappeared, biodiversity was practically lost, and with it so were employment and tourism. The park’s value was virtually diminished, which makes its story of revival even more remarkable.

In 2017, 18 Eastern black rhinoceros were reintroduced to Akagera bringing the species back to the park, and the country of Rwanda after a 10-year absence.
