Welcome to Karenge Bush Camp

Karenge Bush Camp, meaning "small footprint' in Kinyarwanda is a seasonal camp set up in Akagera National Park by African Parks for 3 months at a time.  No cement or permanent construction materials are used in the set up of the camp and everything is removed without a trace at the end of the season. As with its sister camp Ruzizi Tented Camp, Karenge Bush Camp focusses on being wholly environmentally conscious.

To reach Akagera National Park is around a 2-3 hour drive from the capital Kigali , which is a distance of just over 100kms. Leaving the capital Kigali after breakfast will mean you can reach Akagera in time for lunch, followed by an afternoon game drive.
