Flora /Vegetation in Akagera National Park

Vegetation in Akagera national parkFlora /Vegetation in Akagera national park; Akagera national park is blessed with exceptional levels of biodiversity, partly due to its convenient location at the confluence of various vegetation zones. The park is made up of Forest fringed lakes, savannah plains, papyrus swamps and rolling highlands. The extensive systems of freshwater lakes together with papyrus swamps, all combine to form the largest protected and conserved wetland in central Africa. Akagera National park is the only outstanding protected area with savannah vegetation in the land of thousand hills-Rwanda and this makes it to be the only refuge for savannah adapted plants and animals on a national scale. It complements the humid forests of Nyungwe National Park in the south of Rwanda and the afro-alpine habitats of Volcanoes National Park in the north.
