Sango Safari Camp

Okavango Delta

Rating: Modest    

Sango Safari Camp overview

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.

Mr. Karl Brueckner

"lots of animals in camp which was exciting no AC so one afternoon it was really hot in tent in btwn drives. Need fans in there esp since there is no pool or other places to go. However, the rooms were adequate and nice. Meals: great cook. simple breakfast, good lunch, and dinners were the best meal. Best option for kids. "

Margaret Towse
"This was great camp! It doesn't describe itself as luxurious but it is very comfortable and well equipped. The staff were very friendly and clearly enjoy their work. Most live in the local village. The solar panels provide gentle lighting after dark and the bucket showers work really well. Just ask and hot water appears minutes later! This was probably the favourite of the 3 camps that we stayed at. My complicated dietary requirements didn't phase them either!"
Barbara McKenzie
"A fabulous bush experience, my absolute favourite. An even smaller camp with friendly people working there and a great atmospher among the guests.The bucket showers were novel for 3 nights but glad to get back to a proper one. Should have brought a torch as there are only solar and oil lamps. I loved sitting round the campfire and sharing stories with other travellers and guides."
Mrs. Julia Bell
"At night the hippos offer a lullaby. By day the camp offers all you need for a great stay. It was good to see a camp run by local people who are determined to give their guests a thoroughly enjoyable stay. We even experienced a surprise bush evening meal in a bush camp lit by candles. So much work had gone into creating a magical scene , a feast cooked on the campfire and with plentiful booze to accompany the three course meal. Sango was friendly place where every face greeted you with a smile. "
Mr. Rumpelstiltskin
"Food pretty average but the camp is amazing given its location. Guiding (Frank) was incredible, very insightful and the welcome is warm and friendly. Would recommend to anyone. "
