Stay in our Cabins or Camp beneath the stars
Karungi Camp is the perfect base for your adventures in Uganda, whatever they may be!
Our cabins are comfortable and affordable, making Karungi a convenient and fun place to explore.
Karungi Camp is known for its fantastic breakfasts, with all meals locally sourced.
Our menu will change according to the seasons, the availability of local products, our chef’s creativity and guest favourites. Best of all, you can count on getting the best breakfast in Uganda – seriously!
Bwindi National Park – Awaiting Discovery!
Karungi Camp provides comfortable, affordable accommodation next to the Bwindi Impenetrable National Park in Southern Uganda.
The diverse and protected animal sanctuary is UNESCO World Heritage listed, and home to over half of the worlds remaining gorillas and many other endangered species.
At Karungi, we believe that travel (and life!) should be an escape from the ordinary and an opportunity to truly connect with the people, places and cultures around us.
Guided by locals
Our local community guides can connect you with a number of authentic local experiences.
Our community guides have been fully trained, speak excellent english, were born and bred in the local community, and share a real passion for the local way of life, culture, and traditions.
In order to make the local people more accessible to visitors, our excursions are tailored to small groups. All activities and local experiences directly support the local community.
