With scenic views over Lake Rwanyakazinga and the Mutumba Mountains standing proud in the west Magashi offers a premier safari opportunity. The park is a conservation masterpiece, brought back from the brink by African Parks, Wilderness Safaris and other local operators. Now it boasts an abundance of wildlife including the big 5 and a staggering 520 species of bird. Rwanda is an incredibly scenic country and having the opportunity to pair a gorilla trekking experience at Bisate and a traditional safari at Magshi is a premium combination. Magashi is in an exclusive area so you will have a private and exclusive experience. Guests can see waterbuck, impala and warthog grazing on the peninsula from camp. There is an abundance of hippo, crocodile and elephant in and around the lake and guests can try their hand at catch and release fishing. Birders will be delighted to see the East African birdlife on display, an incredible experience.
Magashi was established in partnership with the Rwanda Development Board (RDB) and African Parks who manage the park,. This demonstrates Wilderness Safaris on-going commitment to sustainable and authentic ecotourism. Magashi helps conserve Rwanda’s last protected savannah ecosystem. The presence of Magashi in Akagera National Park contributes to the local communities and self-sustainability of the park.
There are six spacious tented guest rooms at Magashi. All tented rooms offer uninterrupted views over Lake Rwanyakazinga. The main area brings the Lake into camp with a large expansive viewing deck with a convivial fire-pit. The luxurious lunge and bar area are great places to relax and soak up the experience. The architecture and interiors are infused with Rwandan culture making this traditional safari authentically Rwandan.
