Is the Wilderness Magashi for Me?
Wilderness Magashi is situated in the productive and phenomenally diverse northeastern corner of Akagera National Park, overlooking scenic Lake Rwanyakazinga.
Akagera comprises some of the most scenic savannah in East Africa – open plains, woodlands, lakes, swamp and grassy low mountains – and is home to one of Africa’s highest hippo densities, giant crocodiles, as well as the rare sitatunga and boasting an impressive 520 species of birds.
Teeming with plains game, Akagera also boasts a healthy lion population introduced by African Parks in 2015 after a 20-year absence; black rhinos were reintroduced in 2017, and white rhinos in 2021.
Wilderness Magashi – the only exclusive-use area in Akagera – also harbours a good density of leopards.
