Lions are pictured in Lion Park in LanseriaBy Clement Uwiringiyimana AKAGERA, Rwanda (Reuters) - Rwanda reintroduced lions, flown in from South Africa, to its Akagera National Park this week after the last indigenous animal was spotted in 2006 and plans to add rhinos within a year as it bids to draw more tourists, park officials said. Safaris are a lucrative business in east Africa and the so-called "Big Five", which include lions and rhinos, are usually star attractions for visitors. Rwanda, still heavily dependent on aid after a 1994 genocide tore the nation apart, is best known for treks to see endangered gorillas on the slopes of the Virunga Mountains, but it has been seeking to boost its tourism revenues.
