The park’s lakes and swamps mean that Akagera is the largest protected wetland in central Africa. The park is home to many rare species, such as the Sitagunga antelope, a swamp dweller. The highly sought shoebill stork is a rare bird that is also regularly seen. Look for the elusive blue monkey, which was thought to have become extinct in the park but has since been spotted!
