East of the capital, on the Tanzanian border, Akagera National Park is Central Africa’s largest protected wetland and the last remaining refuge for savannah species in Rwanda. After near collapse in the 1990s, it has seen an incredible transformation and regeneration thanks to conservation efforts which the pioneering Magashi Camp supports alongside NGO African Parks. Now teeming with plains game, Akagera also boasts a healthy population of lions, which were reintroduced into the park in 2015 after a 20-year absence, as well as black rhinos two years later. It’s a wonderful ongoing story of regeneration which you can learn about on game drives and nature walks.
A charming luxury base for gorilla trekking and Rwanda’s ﬁrst ever community-owned lodge. The views are special too.
Welcome to Volcanoes National Park. The park encompasses 160 km2 of rainforests and five volcanic peaks in the northwest of Rwanda bordering Virunga National Park in the Democratic Republic of Congo and Uganda's Mgahinga National Park. This is one of the few places where mountain gorillas live in the wild. A handful of troops of these gentle giants have been habituated, allowing a strictly limited number of visitors to spend time in their humbling presence, funding conservation efforts that make this the only population of great apes that is increasing in number. Other wildlife here includes some 200 bird species and the rare golden monkey.
The highlight of any stay here is a gorilla trek. At the nearby park HQ you’ll meet your ranger-guide team before trekking into the forest for your encounter with a habituated family group. Watch as young ones play and roll through the undergrowth, mothers delicately eat bamboo and adolescent males show off. A proud silverback is always an impressive sight, especially so on foot in their home. An awe-inspiring wildlife experience.
