Akagera National Park
Akagera National Park, in the far east of Rwanda and overlooking beautiful Lake Rwanyakazinga, comprises some of the most scenic savannah in East Africa. Comprising open plains, woodlands, lakes, swamp and grassy low mountains the park teems with plains game and is home to one of Africa's highest hippo densities, some very large crocodiles and a healthy population of lion as well as the rare sitatunga and black rhino and more than 520 bird species.
Stay at Magashi Camp, the only exclusive-use area in Akagera, in the productive and phenomenally diverse north-eastern corner of the park which is home to a good density of leopard. Six spacious and airy tents offer uninterrupted views over Lake Rwanyakazinga, while Magashi's main area comprises a luxurious lounge, dining and bar area, pool, and expansive viewing deck with a convivial fire pit. The architecture and interiors pay homage to traditional Rwandan culture.
