The Camp welcomes you with the breathtaking scenery of the Park and the cool soothing breezes from its surrounding lakes.

The Camp is a must see place! It is spectacularly well-built on a hill overlooking Kitako and Kabazimu Islands. It is also surrounded by Lake Edward, the Katwe salt Lake and Munyanyange crater Lakes that contain lots of flamingoes, Hippos, buffalo and other other animals. The extraordinary landscape of the crater lakes was created by volcanic activity some 8,000 to 10,000 years ago. The Camp blends into its natural surroundings to enable visitors to feel as if they are part of the wildness.
