Magashi Camp is the only exclusive-use area in Akagera offering great game viewing. A healthy population of lion were reintroduced to the park in 2015 after a 20-year absence. Guests at Magashi have the opportunity to view black rhino who were reintroduced in 2017 and are thriving in their new protected environment. The park also harbours a good density of leopard.

The camp offers six spacious, airy tents with uninterrupted views over Lake Rwanyakazinga. The main area includes a luxurious lounge, dining and bar area, pool and expansive viewing deck with a cosy fire pit. The architecture and interiors take inspiration from traditional Rwandan culture.

Magashi offers its guests the ideal opportunity to combine an extraordinary gorilla experience at Volcanoes National Park with a spectacular savannah safari at Akagera. In addition to this there's the prospect of viewing chimps and other primates in the forests of western Rwanda, offering a complete standalone safari experience.
