Sustainability

Magashi Camp prides itself its eco-friendly image and active role in conservation efforts, the camp is 100% solar powered and uses no single use plastic products with the aim of having as little negative impact on the surrounding environment as possible. Its core purpose is to help contribute towards the conservation and sustainable operation of Rwanda’s last protected Savannah ecosystem. The lodge has taken on roles such as monitoring and studying local wildlife such as the endangered Shoebill Stork and the reintroduction of Black Rhinos. In addition they help in the removal of alien invasive plant species that threaten the local ecosystem and also help to support and fund post-graduate Rwandan conservation students in order to ensure a prosperous future for the region. Your visit really does help, and as wilderness Safari’s puts it ‘every guest is a philanthropist’.

Location

Set in the north-eastern corner of Akagera National Park, Magashi Camp overlooks Lake Rwanyakazinga and some of East Africa’s most scenic savannah. It’s the only camp in Rwanda situated inside a national park, and the entire complex is raised on a wooden walkway to protect guests from hippos and crocs. It takes around three and a half hours to drive to the capital, Kigali.
