Karenge Bush Camp

Karenge Bush Camp in Akagera national park.

Derived from a Kyanrwanda word meaning ‘small footprint’ Karenge Buch camp is a seasonal Akagera national park. 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. The camp is set up bi-annually for 3 months at a time, 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.  The camp offer six tents, with a maximum of 12 guests. Beds are camp beds with mattresses and bedding. Camp chairs, reed mat floors and solar lights are provided in each tent. The bathrooms are bucket showers and toilets and a canvas basin. Warm water is provided daily.
