En Kinyarwanda, le mot Karenge signifie petites empreintes et c’est tout le concept de cet éco-lodge éphémère qui s’installe au milieu de la savane deux fois par an pour quelques semaines : ne laisser aucune trace lorsqu’il sera démonté et donc ne pas impacter l’environnement merveilleux où il est installé temporairement . Situé au nord du parc de l’Akagera, le Karenge Bush camp vous offre l’opporunité de camper dans un certain confort tout en étant au beau milieu du bush. C’est une expérience merveilleuse et unique.

It has a warm, welcoming atmosphere and you will really feel good there.
