Magashi offers six, spacious and airy, canvas tented accommodation that pays homage to Rwandan culture using a traditional, elegant East African safari feel. The interiors are meticulously designed so that guests are able to take full advantage of the beautiful wilderness surrounds and tranquil, uninterrupted views over Lake Rwanyakazinga.
The interior design features an array of locally-sourced artefacts and elements inspired by the camp’s exceptional natural setting and Rwanda’s amazing renaissance – a huge part of which has seen the reinvention of traditional textiles and ceremonies in a modern context.
'Imigongo' is a type of art that is based on patterns in black, white, and ochre colours generated through lines crafted on a cow dung surface. This art form originated in the Eastern Province of Rwanda, and is formally known as 'Igisaka cy’Imigongo'. These geometric patterns further emphasise the striking local cultural reference – while khaki is used quite prominently throughout the interiors to evoke the feeling of a traditional safari, with harmonising accents of blush in the mosquito nets, cushions and chairs providing a more contemporary feel.
