Fully-catered bush camp in the Big 5 Akagera National Park, Rwanda

Karenge Bush Camp overview

Perched on a ridge overlooking the wildlife-rich Kilala Plains below, Karenge is an off-the-grid getaway for safari enthusiasts seeking privacy and solitude. In the remote north of Akagera National Park, the camp is completely unfenced to give guests a natural safari experience. The camp is conveniently located a short game drive from the north (exit only) gate to national park - near productive game-viewing areas.

Karenge is a rustic fully-catered bush camp featuring six tented chalets (canvas on raised wooden decks). Each tent has a private but separate outdoor bathroom and loo located a few steps from the tent. The canvas central area includes a lounge, dining area and bar, an outdoor fire pit and a wooden deck with wonderful views over the bushveld below. Karenge means ‘small footprint’ in Kinyarwanda, which reflects this camp's rustic charm and light ecological footprint.

  • Karenge is closed annually during April.
