President Kagame receives Prince Harry in Rwanda

President Paul Kagame, received Prince Harry, The Duke of Sussex, in Rwanda who is on a working visit in his capacity as the President of African Parks.

African Parks is a non-profit conservation organisation that manages national parks and protected areas on behalf of governments and in collaboration with local communities across Africa.

According to his spokesperson, Harry is currently touring Africa with a group of U.S. officials, conservationists, and philanthropists as they visit different protected wildlife and nature areas

It manages 19 national parks in 11 countries on the continent, across almost 15 million hectares, the largest amount of conserved area.

The Government of Rwanda has agreements with African Parks to manage Akagera and Nyungwe national parks.

The 20-year agreement signed in 2020 allowed the organisation to manage Nyungwe National Park, home to a quarter of Africa’s primates – 13 species including chimpanzees and the extremely rare Hamlyn’s and L’Hoest’s monkeys.
