Magashi Camp is an intimate eco-camp in the north-eastern corner of Akagera National Park, overlooking the beautiful Lake Rwanyakazinga. Akagera offers some of the most scenic savannahs in East Africa with diverse landscape from open plains to woodland, swampland and picturesque mountains. The park is also home to Africas highest hippos densities, rare sitatunga, large crocodiles and over 520 bird species.
The camp has 6 spacious tented built-in traditional safari style on raised wooden decks offering panoramic views of the surrounding wilderness. The beautifully designed rooms are furnished with en-suite bathrooms, a complimentary minibar and a comfortable seating area. Paying homage to Rwandan culture through locally-inspired interior design you find in the rooms and communal areas.
Magashi is driven by Wilderness Safaris’ commitment to the 4Cs sustainability ethos of “Commerce, Community, Culture and Conservation.” The camp itself is constructed out of naturally occurring materials and is fully solar-powered and completely single-use plastic-free. Game drives, boating trips and walks will allow guests to see rare species like the black rhinoceros and lions reintroduced in the park in 2015 and 2017 after a 20-year absence. And for those who enjoy the tranquillity of fishing, Magashi offers you the opportunity of catching tilapia and catfish on a catch-and-release basis, all whilst surrounded by water birds that make Lake Rwanyakazinga their playground.
