Lion in Akagera NP is exploring the new home!

Seven lions, two males and five females, arrived in the akagera National Park (Rwanda) from South Africa on Tuesday 30th June 2015 at Akagera National Park (Rwanda), where they are being kept in quarantine for at least two weeks before their release into the wilderness. The last lions were wiped out following the country’s 1994 genocide. According to the Akagera Park Director Jes Gruner said “It is a huge conservation milestone, it is a beginning of a fantastic chapter for lions in Rwanda”.

We welcome the Lions in our unique savannah park and we are proud that the Akagera National Park will evolve to a real game driving among the African National Parks.
