Magashi Camp

Classic A deluxe lodge or tented camp, almost all with swimming pools, excellent food and service, large nicely appointed rooms or tents with comfortable beds and tasteful decor; most of the lodges have air-conditioning and the tents are usually fan-cooled.

Magashi Camp is located in the north-eastern part of Akagera National Park and overlooks Lake Rwanyakazinga. The camp features six spacious tents with views of the lake. The main lounge has a large dining section and bar as well as viewing deck over the plains. Relax by the fireplace and take in the views and star gaze at night. The luxurious camp is decorated with traditional Rwandan art and rich tapestries.

Akagera could not be more different than the lush green hills that characterize much of Rwanda. The landscape is characterized by a labyrinth of swamps and lakes that follow the Akagera River, along with savannah and acacia woodland. 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. Herds of elephants and buffalo, leopard, hyena, giraffe, zebra and more than a dozen types of antelope inhabit the park. The lakes of Akagera provide visitors with hippo and crocodile sightings as well as a high concentration of water birds. Activities are varied and include game drives, boat rides, catch and release fishing, guided walking safaris and night game drives.
