Akagera National Park in Rwanda has reported that 2017 saw a 20 percent increase in net revenue.

The park recently released figures that showed it fetched USD1.6 million net revenue in 2017, resulting in the increase on 2016 figures. Revenue was reported to have covered half the Park’s annual budget for 2017.

37,284 visitors were welcomed to the Park during 2017, of which 31,032 were Rwanda nationals, demonstrating an increase in domestic tourism.

Sarah Hall, marketing manager, Akagera National Park, noted, “There was a slight increase in park fees, and […] particularly international visitors […] contribute more to entry fee revenue.”
