Magashi Camp is set overlooking Lake Rwanyakazinga in the north-eastern corner of the game-rich Akagera National Park. It is an exclusive safari destination that will appeal to those looking for the unique and the bespoke. Accommodation is in just six spacious tents with uninterrupted views of the river; each is outfitted for comfort complete with en-suite bathrooms and viewing decks. The main areas are welcoming and conducive to mingling and making friends over drinks and dinner. For something special, like a dinner in the outdoors can be arranged.
This region is known for its diversity of habitats – open plains, swamp, lakes, mountains and woodlands – and of wildlife. It is home to a very high concentration of hippo and good numbers of leopards, as well as rare species and more than 520 bird species. Lion were reintroduced to the park in 2015 and black rhino in 2017. These and numerous other species, including elephant, spotted hyena, zebra and buffalo, are spotted on game drives, guided walks and boating trips. If this isn’t enough, a hot-air balloon trip over the landscape offers an unbeatable way to take in the majesty of the environment and the wildlife that inhabit it.
