Wilderness Magashi Rwanda Pool



Abundant Savannah

Rare wildlife awaits at Wilderness Magashi, overlooking vast savannah, and the shimmering waters of Lake Rwanyakazinga.


Wilderness Magashi

Intimate. Luxurious. Wilderness.


Witness the abundance of Akagera National Park from Wilderness Magashi.  Home once more to an abundance of apex predators and their prey. Marvel at lion, white and black rhino, buffalo and elephant roaming its hills and vast savannah. This is the quintessential East African safari adventure and the perfect complement to your gorilla trekking experience in Rwanda.

Meals at Magashi are designed with sustainability in mind, offering healthy flavourful recipes that tread lightly on the Earth. Our menu heroes Rwanda’s indigenous ingredients, local dishes and fresh produce. Sample the famous ‘Rolex’ breakfast wrap - a signature choice - and a travelling Kugisha dinner, which is served with a collection of traditional stories and songs.

Wilderness Magashi

Private. Peaceful. Participatory. Akagera National Park is a story of survival and regeneration. And significantly, Rwanda's last remaining refuge for savannah species. Help us keep it that way by joining us in tracking and monitoring leopard, lion and rhino through the use of identikits. A wonderful way to become part of the Magashi rehabilitation story.


Wilderness Magashi Rwanda Impact Protect Purpose

Impact at Magashi

We made history at Magashi when we partnered with the Rwanda Development Board and African Parks. Since its opening in 2019, two of our guides became the first-ever Rwandans to receive a coveted FGASA qualification. Today, Akagera’s rebirth is an extraordinary conservation success story. And you’re part of it, helping increase the world’s wilderness and our ability to help protect it.






Magashi experiences

Immerse yourself in Rwanda’s savannah on our private wilderness area in Akagera. Wake to a chorus of birds, elephants quietly wading into the lake, and a freshly brewed cup of coffee, before heading out to experience the East African wild. Game drives and boating end with an evening of traditional cuisine, stories, song, and dance.


Explore camps in Akagera National Park

Wilderness Magashi’s home is the miraculous Akagera National Park on Rwanda’s north-eastern border. In stark contrast to Volcanoes National Park, Akagera’s savannah, woodlands, wetlands and lakes create expansive landscapes, ideal for exceptional game viewing.
