Lango Camp

North west Congo rainforest

Rating: Mid-range    

Lango Camp overview

Lango Camp nestles in dense rainforest overlooking the Lango Bai, a nutrient-rich swamp which attracts lots of wildlife, near the Lekoli River. The camp offers a varied range of activities including walking, boating and kayaking, allowing you to explore the rich flora and fauna of Odzala-Kokua National Park. While here you can expect to see forest buffalos, bushbuck, sitatunga, forest hogs, large flocks of African grey parrots and African green pigeons, and occasionally forest elephants usually present after dark. 

With a maximum capacity of 12 guests the camp never feels crowded. You have your own self-contained room with a wraparound viewing deck with views of the bai, and a private shower room with hot and cold running water plus a supply of toiletries. There's a fan in the bedroom and the whole room is set on a raised platform to aid the cooling flow of air. A wooden walkway links your room to the camp's central areas.

The communal areas are set on raised platforms, so you can enjoy views into the rainforest as you relax and enjoy meals between activities. In the evening you'll gather around the camp fire after dinner to talk over they day's events, and to enjoy some stargazing from the large deck.
