Kacheera Camp is a wildlife adventure camp in south west Uganda. With its outdoor showers, camping accommodation, fireside cooking and wild environment, we hope to open our guests eyes to all the elements of the wild.
At camp, we encourage you to leave the ever increasingly technological world behind and find your natural spot in the wild once more. Everyone is welcome, from the kids who attend our wildlife courses to volunteers lending a hand on one of our projects. Students researching their thesis to those just wanting to camp and unwind, there’s a spot for everyone.
Apart from a multi-use covered main area to protect from rain or sun, there are no other permanent structures at the camp. Open air showers, roofed compost toilets and a campsite takes you back to basics and immerses you in your surroundings.
