A member of the
Magashi Camp is situated in the productive and phenomenally diverse north-eastern corner of Akagera National Park, overlooking beautiful Lake Rwanyakazinga. Akagera comprises some of the most scenic savannah in East Africa – open plains, woodlands, lakes, swamp, and grassy low mountains – and is home to one of Africa’s highest hippo densities, some very large crocodiles as well as well as the rare sitatunga and more than 520 bird species.
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.
Six spacious and airy tents offer uninterrupted views over Lake Rwanyakazinga, while Magashi’s main area comprises a luxurious lounge, dining and bar area, pool, and expansive viewing deck with a convivial fire pit. The architecture and interiors pay homage to traditional Rwandan culture.
WHY CHOOSE MAGASHI CAMP?
- With some 500 avian species, Akagera National Park boasts a bird count comparable with the world-famous Kruger National Park, despite being just 5% of Kruger’s area.
- Akagera’s habitat differs widely from the rainforests of Volcanoes National Park, making a safari here the ideal complement to Rwanda’s western areas.
- Characterised by large water bodies there is ample space for one of Africa’s highest hippo densities, and some very large crocodiles.
