Akagera National Park lies in eastern Rwanda, hugging the border with Tanzania. It’s characterized by woodland, swamps, low mountains and savannah. The park covers an area of 160 square km and it holds Rwanda safari section of the Virunga Mountains, including 6 extinct plus 3 active volcanoes which overlap the national borders of Uganda with Rwanda as well as the Democratic Republic of Congo. Volcanoes Park is a section of the nearby 433 square kilometer Trans border conservation area which in addition includes the Virunga and the known Mgahinga National Park found in Uganda and also the  Democratic Republic of Congo’s section of the Virunga ranges.
