Within the Park, the one and only accommodation opportunity is represented by three campsites. The price is 20 $ per person, per night, and does not include the Park entrance ticket. Campsite no. 1 is just 700 m far from the Park gates, in the direction of Prince Bernard Falls. Campsite no. 2 lies in a better position, 2 km far from the gates. Campsite no. 3 is the most equipped area, but it is situated at a few meters from the entrance gate, next to the road.

Just outside the Park there are a couple of hotels you can reach from the village of Mang'ula with a short walk.
