Adventure-seekers will find a paradise at the luxury Magashi Camp tucked in the north-eastern region of Akagera National Park, bordering Tanzania.
At Magashi Camp, the view of Lake Rwanyakazinga is embraced by the low, misty mountains that are quintessentially Rwandan. Beyond its grassy curves there are open plains, woodlands, and swamps that make this an enticing region with an incredible variety of wildlife and landscapes.
Proprietors of Magashi Camp have partnered with the Rwandan Development Board and African Parks to dream up this six-tented haven. At camp, guests can stay in luxury with an eco-conscious twist. Tents are airy and fresh with cozy seating inviting you to unwind after a day of trekking. An open lounge area looks out to the lake; it’s the perfect spot to enjoy a cocktail as the setting sun casts a heavenly glow over the landscape. At night, warm up around the fire and try to count the twinkling stars overhead.
Bisate Lodge, the sister property of Magashi Camp, has inspired the interior design of this new Rwanda retreat. Interesting patterns and pops of gentle color giving the decor a modern African twist.
Magashi focuses on conserving Rwanda’s last protected savannah, home to shoebill storks and black rhinos. Already there has been an incredible transformation in this fragile area, once known for poaching.
Head out on a game drive with an expert guide or take a walking safari through the region. Buffalo, lion, leopard, elephants, giraffes, spotted hyena, and zebras are just some of the animals that roam this lush land. Boat trips on the glassy lake offer wildlife encounters, too. There are 500 birds that soar through Akagera National Park’s sky, and Lake Rwanyakazinga is home to some of the highest hippo numbers on the continent and plenty of crocodiles.
Many travelers miss out on the beauty of the Rwandan savannahs. With Ker & Downey, their diverse wonder can easily be added to any customized gorilla trekking itinerary.
