About This Accommodation

Magashi, a new luxury camp, is opening in Rwanda’s Akagera National Park in mid-December 2018. The six-tented camp will be set on the shores of Lake Rwanyakazinga in Akagera National Park – home to one of Africa’s highest hippo densities, some very large crocodiles, and (hidden within its wetlands) the secretive sitatunga and shoebill stork.

A wide range of wildlife-viewing options will be available to guests on expertly-guided game drives, walks and boating trips, including buffalo, lion, leopard, elephant, giraffe, spotted hyaena, zebra, topi, roan, eland and more.

We’re thrilled that the new addition will help make Rwanda a “one-stop shop” for combining gorilla viewing and classic savannah safari. You can even fly between Magashi and Bisate, a premiere eco-camp in Volcanoes National Park, by helicopter for a seamless – and extra scenic – transfer.

Tip: For extra primate focus, you can also visit the chimps and monkeys of Rwanda’s western forests.

  • Wilderness Safaris is proud to be at the forefront of Rwandan ecotourism, and privileged to present the only luxury wilderness offering in East Africa combining mountain gorillas and savannah safaris. Here, Magashi offers a savannah and wetland experience comparable to the best in East Africa, its thrilling wildlife tableau unfolding against a backdrop of exquisite natural beauty, where plentiful game is followed by predators of every stripe. Birding is, in a word, extraordinary, with some 500 species (including numerous East African specials) to be seen. Nestled on the scenic shores of Lake Rwanyakazinga in the park’s north-east, the camp itself may be compared to the country’s traditional Kitenge fabric, its serenely elegant setting woven through with vibrant Rwandan culture. Our aim is to build sustainable conservation economies in Africa, and we are honoured to be able to use our model of ecotourism to contribute to the conservation and restoration of the tiny, yet exceptional Akagera National Park.
