Magashi, Wilderness Safaris’ newest camp, has been established in Rwanda’s spectacularly beautiful Akagera National Park, in partnership with the Rwanda Development Board and conservation group African Parks. They are privileged to reveal more of the people and wildlife of Rwanda to discerning travellers and guests.
Magashi is named after the peninsula on which it stands, looking out over the lake towards the Mutumba
Mountains in the west. On the peninsula’s western side, waterbuck, impala and warthog can often be seen grazing, while on the eastern side, eland frequent the lakeshore. The shore itself offers views of hippo, large crocodiles and a chance of elephant bulls, while the core of the Amahoro lion pride is encapsulated by this spit of land.
Six spacious and airy tented guest rooms offer uninterrupted views over the lake, while Magashi’s main area comprises a luxurious lounge, dining and bar area, wine cellar and pool, as well as an expansive viewing deck with convivial fire pit. The architecture and interiors pay homage to traditional Rwandan culture.
