Perched on the banks of Lake Rwanyakazinga in Akagera National Park, Magashi Camp is poised to open your eyes onto another dimension of Rwanda’s rich wildlife. With the mountain gorillas and the chimps ensconced in the jungles of the east, Akagera is instead given over to a teeming abundance of plains game – and even the odd glimpse of the Big Five. Seen from the luxury of Magashi Camp, where eight gorgeous tents teeter over hippo-filled waters and a magnificent boma crackles beneath the night sky, this is the Rwanda you never knew existed.
A three-hour drive from Kigali will lead you out of mountainous foothills and instead into the grassy savannah of Akagera National Park.

Making the most of their exclusive-use patch, Magashi offers both boating safaris on their decked-out swamp cruisers and game drives by day and night.
