Karenge Bush Camp

Leave a little footprint in Akagera

Located in Akagera National Park, the seasonal Karenge Bush Camp is set up twice a year and then taken down, leaving no trace of its existence. Somewhere between a campsite and a lodge, Karenge aims to leave a light footprint on the earth, echoed in the name Karenge meaning “little foot”.

Named after the river that flows along its eastern boundary, Akagera National Park has a varied landscape and superb biodiversity. On day or night game drives keep an eye out for impala, topi, eland, oribi, giraffe, sable and roan antelope, hippo, zebra, crocodile, elephant, lion, leopard, primates, and close to 500 bird species. Boat trips on Lake Ihema are a great opportunity to view water species.

A maximum of 12 guests are accommodated in six tents containing camp beds and bedding, camp chairs, solar lights, and reed matt floors. Each tent has a rustic outdoor bathroom with hot water delivered daily. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are all included in the rate and are served in the dining tent each day. Enjoy the thrill of staying in a pop-up camp that moves around Akagera.
