Karenge Bush Camp Akagera National Park Rwanda
Karenge Bush Camp Akagera is a seasonal pop-up camp that shows the different areas of Akagera National Park. The word Karenge also means “small foot” in the Kinyarwanda language. This also supports well with the camp’s goal to be so eco-friendly and leave as small an environmental footprint as possible. Since it’s a seasonal camp, it’s open for some periods during each year and changes locations each and every time.
Driving to Akagera National Park takes around 2-3 hours from Kigali, which is a distance of just over 100 km. Leaving the capital Kigali after breakfast will mean you can reach Akagera in time for lunch, followed by an afternoon game drive.
The camp is named after the river that flows along its eastern boundary and the park has got a diverse landscape as well as fantastic biodiversity. Whether on day or night game drives, you can keep an eye on the eland, topis, giraffes, impalas, sable and roan antelope, zebras, crocodiles, lions, leopards, primates, and close to 500 bird species. The boat trips on Lake Ihema are also a good opportunity of viewing the water species.
Karenge Bush Camp is set up twice a year during the drier months of June to September and December to February. Between those times the cam is completely removed. Karenge Bush Camp Akagera is constructed with eco-friendly materials that are all removed when the camp is decomposed at the end of a season.
The Camp focuses on being wholly environmentally conscious. No cement or permanent construction materials are used in the set-up of Karenge Bush Camp.
Karenge contains 6 charming canvas tents and accommodates a maximum of 12 guests, making it an intimate wilderness experience. Every tent contains two cozy camp beds with mattresses and bedding, camp chairs, reed mat floors, and solar lights for reading before bed, the sounds of nature all around you.
The camp’s six tents enjoy their own private, outdoor bathrooms with bucket showers, toilets, and canvas basins. Warm water is provided daily The tents are also raised which reduces the risk of animal entry and also increases safety. Each of the tents has two comfy beds, a couple of lamps as well as the standard hotel room’s usual basics like towels and toiletries.
