Sango Safari Camp overlooks the Khwai River on the outskirts of the traditional village of Khwai and on the border of Moremi Game Reserve. The camp offers guests the perfect base from which to explore the wildlife and culture of the unique habitat of the Okavango Delta.
This intimate safari camp is named for the Sango Family, some of the original inhabitants of the Khwai area, and now part owners of the camp. You will have the chance to learn first-hand about the unique lifestyle and experiences that come from living and growing up in one of the most wildlife rich areas of Botswana.
Accommodating 12 guests in 6 large en-suite tents, Sango Safari Camp is designed in the style of the classic tented safari camp of days gone by. With its open-air bucket showers, hand crafted furnishings and classic styling the camp aims to recreate the atmosphere of the luxury mobile safari camp, successfully blending the rustic with the luxurious.
With the Khwai River forming a natural border between the world famous Moremi Game Reserve and Khwai Concession, animals can travel freely through this vast unfenced wilderness. Situated on the river overlooking the Moremi and with access to both these magnificent wildlife areas, Sango is focused on delivering a high quality wildlife experience. The camp's location allows you to take advantage of a host of wildlife activities which include open vehicle game drives both in the Moremi and in the Khwai concession area, guided bush walks, night drives and mokoro trips.
With a combination of permanent water, seasonal floodplains, open grasslands, riverine forests, and dry woodlands this incredibly rich habitat supports a diversity and abundance of mammals and birds rarely matched in northern Botswana. Sango Safari Camp invites you to share in this bounty.

"We loved the small, intimate camp and the wonderfully welcoming staff. Game viewing was superb, especially being able to go off-road and stay out a bit after dark."
