Akagera Park in Rwanda to Reintroduce Black Rhinos

Share it

After a successful relocation of a lion from South Africa brought these predators back. Now the African Parks which manages the A Kagera Park is planning to go through with a similar deal to bring in 20 Rhinos from South Africa.

African Parks  in partnership with the Rwanda Development Board’s tourism and conservation department, is now advancing the re-introduction of the Eastern Black rhinos.

Cattle herders poisoned Rwanda’s last remaining Rhonoss after parks were left unmanaged and occupied by displaced people in the wake of the 1994 genocide, according to the conservation group African Parks

Information from Rwanda suggests that some 20 rhinos will be brought from a private game reserve in South Africa and that the holding bomas for the animals at Akagera are almost complete.

Bringing back rhinos to Akagera, a park of over 1.100 square kilometres in size, will further increase the popularity of the park, which has become a magnet for in particular Rwandan travelers after roads were upgraded and additional tourist camps put up inside the park with special rates for Rwandans and residents.
