Karenge means ‘small foot’ in Kinyarwanda. As well as being the name of the area where the camp was first set up, it echoes the aim of the bush camp to leave a light footprint on the earth.

Karenge is a seasonal camp, opening bi-annually, and when it is taken down there should be no lasting presence of its existence. No cement or permanent construction materials are used in the set-up of Karenge Bush Camp which means it can, and may, move location.

The camp offer six tents, with a maximum of 12 guests. The camp is fully staffed and catered for on a full board basis. A lounge/dining tent with a bar and a campfire forms the central meeting point. Tents either side include two camp beds with mattresses and bedding. Camp chairs, reed mat floors and solar lights are provided in each tent. The bathrooms, next to each tent, have bucket showers and toilets and a canvas wash basin. Warm water is provided daily.

Karenge is owned and managed by the park management and 100% of the profits from the running of the camp goes directly back into the management and conservation of the park as a whole.

Why we like it

  • Low impact ecofriendly camp.
  • Combines well with sister camp in the south.
  • 100% of all profits going directly to the park.
