Magashi Camp, Akagera National Park

With enchanting views over Lake Rwanyakazinga, Magashi Camp is a comfortable and inviting gateway into one of Rwanda’s most beautiful national parks.

Just six airy tents, each with an undisturbed lake view, form this intimate Rwandan safari camp. Between activities, the raised main area beckons with its swimming pool, elegant lounge, dining and bar area. Interiors are tasteful and contemporary, with a design inspired by traditional Rwandan culture. The expansive viewing deck, complete with a bonfire, offers guests serene lake views and a peaceful space in which to relax.

As well as an abundance of plains game, Akagera is home to healthy numbers of lion and black rhino who were reintroduced to the park in recent years. Lying within its own private concession area, guests of Magashi are able to enjoy both day and night game drives - a great way to spot more elusive nocturnal creatures. Boating safaris on Lake Rwanyakazinga are also available and provide wonderful sightings of water birds and other aquatic animals.

With more than 500 species recorded, Akagera is a paradise for birdwatchers, with expert guides on hand to help you spot rare varieties like the shoebill stork.
