Magashi Camp is north-eastern corner of Rwanda’s Akagera National Park, overlooking beautiful Lake Rwanyakazinga. The area is beautifull and diverse – open plains, woodlands, lakes, swamp, and grassy low mountains.  It is home to one of Africa’s biggest hippo populations, some massive crocodiles and the rare sitatunga as well as more than 520 bird species.  Magashi Camp has 6 large tented guest rooms  with views over the lake. The main area has a comfortable lounge and dining area, bar and pool and expansive viewing deck with a fire pit. The architecture and interiors are inspired by traditional Rwandan culture.

Teeming with plains game, Akagera now also boasts a healthy population of lion, which were reintroduced into the park in 2015 after a 20-year absence, as well as black rhino which were reintroduced in 2017. Magashi – the only exclusive-use area in Akagera – also harbours a good density of leopard.

Magashi has been established in partnership with the Rwanda Development Board (RDB) and African Parks, demonstrating Wilderness Safaris’ commitment to pioneering sustainable and authentic ecotourism in Rwanda. Wilderness Safaris main purpose  is to help conserve Rwanda’s last protected savannah ecosystem, and species like black rhino and the rare and elusive shoebill.

A safari at Magashi Camp combines perfectly with Gorilla Trekking at Bisate Lodge.  The ideal Rwanda circuit!
