Set on a seasonal basis, derived from a Kyanrwanda word meaning ‘small footprint’ Karenge Bush camp is also set up two times in the year and removed out, and leaving no trace of its being. The cam is seasonal and set only during high season when there is enough demand for it. Just between this campsite and the lodge is a Karenge and it aims to leave a light footprint on the earth, echoed in the name Karenge that means little foot.

The camp frequently changes location, showcasing different areas of the uncrowded national park, leaving a light carbon footprint in the process. Experience the magic of a pop-up camp in an area filled with bird and animal life. No cement or permanent construction materials are used in the set up of the camp and everything is removed without trace at the end of the season. As with its sister camp to Ruzizi Tented Camp, Karenge Bush Camp focusses on being wholly environmentally conscious.

Karenge is a seasonal camp, 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 offers 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. This is an authentic bush camp experience.
