Special Stay With The Karenga Community


Our place is run by locals from Karenga and its surrounding villages. We are located in Karenga, a small town 8 km from Kidepo Valley National Park’s main gate. Our homestay is perfect if you are looking to combine wildlife with learning about our local life. Who better to guide you on a walk through the mountain range or to help you understand the local traditions? We can offer you different activities ranging from village tours to full-day mountain hikes.

We offer accommodation for both budget and mid-range travelers where we have single rooms, double rooms, and a campsite. Electricity, TV and flushing toilets are available.

The mountains surrounding Karenga lend themselves perfectly to hiking. A local guide can show you beautiful mountain trails that have been in use since the beginning of time. You will see caves of religious significance, small wild animals, baboons, countless birds, and people living in the most traditional ways. The available hikes range from two to nine hours.

We hope to welcome you soon!

Accommodations were good (we chose contained tents or rooms), food was good. Our fav was Mihingo Lodge, such a lovely place with lovely staff! We absolutely loved our time in Uganda and recommend this community group for their professionalism & attitude.

About Me

Hi, my name is David and I was born in Kitgum in the Northern part of Uganda. I grew up in the civil war, which has created many problems and left many youth and children in a difficult situation. I started this community guesthouse together with Grassrootz to generate income for the community of my village. Besides this, I think it is an unforgettable experience to stay in a traditional village and learn the language and customs of my people. Kitgum is a perfect place also to visit the Kidepo National Park. We look forward to welcoming you and hope to see you soon!
