Akagera National Park, which covers 1,122 km2, was established in 1934, is Rwanda’s largest protected wetland and one of the last surviving refuges for savannah-adapted species. In addition to becoming a wildlife haven, the park’s assistance for income-generating ventures for local populations has risen significantly.
