Bordering Rwanda’s eastern neighbor Tanzania, Akagera National Park is decidedly different.  Dominated scenically by the labyrinth of swamps and lakes that follow the meandering course of the Akagera River, the most remote source of the Nile, this is archetypal African savannah landscape of tangled acacia woodland interspersed with open grassland.  Akagera National Park is, above all, big game country! Herds of Elephant and Buffalo emerge from the woodland to drink at the lakes, while lucky visitors might stumble across a Leopard, a Spotted Hyena or even a stray Lion.
