Overlooking beautiful Lake Rwanyakazinga, Magashi Camp is an intimate and luxurious safari destination making a difference in the conservation and protection of Rwanda’s land and wildlife.
Opening in mid-December 2018, accommodations at the camp will consist of six elegant tented suites. Each suite will feature large, comfy beds draped in mosquito netting and an en suite bathroom. There will also be a shaded veranda for viewing the ample wildlife in comfort and privacy.
The camp is ideally situated in the game-rich Akagera National Park located in eastern Rwanda on the border with Tanzania. The park encompasses around 386-square miles of varied topography including open plains, woodlands, lakes, swamp, and grassy low mountains. Akagera is home to an abundance of wildlife such as buffalo, lion, leopard, elephant, giraffe, spotted hyena, zebra, topi, roan, eland, and many more. Birding enthusiast will revel in the almost 500 species of birds including the spectacular shoebill and the near-endemic red-faced barbet. While Lake Rwanyakazinga boasts one of Africa’s highest hippo densities as well as crocodiles and many waterfowl. Moreover, conservation efforts have nearly eliminated poaching and allowed the reintroduction into the area of lions and the endangered black rhino.
