“Magashi Camp in Akagera is the newest addition to the Wilderness Safaris camp portfolio. Located in Akagera National Park, which is home to open plains, lakes, swamps and grassy low mountains, a stay here will catapult you into nature. Surrounded by 10,000 hectares of national park, enjoy game drives, search the shores of Lake Rwanyakazinga for hippos and crocodiles, go on guided walks, and submerge yourself in wildlife.”
Located north east of Akagera National Park overlooking scenic Lake Rwanyakazinga, Magashi Camp is a new luxury camp from Wilderness Safaris. Opening at the end of 2018, this eco-friendly camp is surrounded by sweeping savannah, lakes and swamps, and is home to one of Africa’s highest hippo densities, as well as plains game and a healthy lion population.
Inspired by Rwandan culture, the six tents are spacious and luxurious with comfortable beds, a seated area, plenty of African touches, and open sides with fantastic lake views. There’s also an open-plan lounge and dining area, bar, viewing deck with warming fire pit, and swimming pool.
Magashi Camp offers a range of activities including game drives and nocturnal game drives, and boating trips to see hippos and crocodiles. Guided walks will take you closer to the wildlife, and you can try your hand at fishing. Birdwatching is amazing with over 500 species including the magnificent shoebill.
