Magashi Camp

The perfect Big Game safari destination after your Gorilla trek in Rwanda


Exclusive Wilderness

Magashi Camp is the only private access area in Akagera National Park – the last remaining refuge for savannah-adapted species in Rwanda. You’ll really feel as if you have miles of wilderness all to yourself, and game drives are personal affairs! 

Magashi’s knowledgeable and passionate guides know the land like the back of their hand, and will enhance your experience with masterful local storytelling. What’s more, your visit will contribute to the efforts of Akagera National park and African Parks in reintroducing wildlife such as lion and black rhino to the area. 

Lakeside Luxury

Home to hippos, crocodiles and countless bird species, Lake Rwanyakazinga is a great scenic lake in the north eastern section of Akagera National Park, and its shimmering waters are overlooked by Magashi Camp. 

Guided boat safaris are a treat for the whole family, and will allow you to experience this Rwandan highlight in the best possible way! 


A Camp Like No Other

Perched on the shores of Lake Rwanyakazinga, Magashi’s eight spacious tented suites welcome you to an exclusive wilderness area surrounded by one of the most serene landscapes imaginable – the ideal setting for your Rwandan safari! 

Meals at Magashi are a treat for all the senses, with unique local dishes that are healthy, flavourful, and sustainable. Be sure to try the signature dishes for a taste of favourite indigenous ingredients served with an accompaniment of traditional stories and songs. 

Wondrous Wildlife

Watch elephants submerging themselves in the lake’s sparkling waters; walk or drive across the open savannah to track rhino, giraffe, and lion; and marvel at the birdlife on a boating safari. If you’re in search of creatures great and small, Magashi Camp offers the perfect Big Game safari after your Gorilla trek in Rwanda.


A Cultural Immersion

Game drives and boating safaris at Magashi end with memorable evenings filled with traditional cuisine, stories, song, and dance.

You can also experience the local culture through the Akagera Heritage tour, which allows visitors to experience life like a local in neighbouring cattle settlements. You can even take part in local activities like beekeeping and making banana beer…
