Virunga National Park, Democratic Republic of Congo
On the banks of the river Ishasha in Virunga National Park lies these serene tented camps. Ideally spaced to allow for privacy, they are an immersive way to experience the treasures of the park whist sleeping under the stars. Within Ishasha sector in the eastern region of the park, they are placed on abundant Savannah plains, providing ample opportunities to spot playful hippos swimming in the water.

Situated in a secluded haven of the park, these tented camps provide excellent access to unexplored areas in the beautifully isolated southern section of Virunga.

For more lounging space there is an additional communal tent, wonderfully relaxing and a great space to chat to fellow travellers or unwind with a book.
