Welcome to Lango Camp

Deep inside Odzala, Lango Camp has been reimagined as one of the most eco-sensitive safari Camps in all of Africa. This is a response to the fragility (and astonishing richness) of the bai it overlooks, and the incredible array of wildlife that is attracted there.

Lango features just six guest rooms, the design of which was inspired by local forest dweller architecture. The roof panels were constructed from raffia by villagers living on the fringes of Odzala, helping sustain local skills, and providing the ultimate in biodegradable building materials. The rooms are connected to each other and the main area by a raised walkway which weaves through the gallery forest on the edge of the bai.

The views from Lango are breathtaking – each morning, the rising sun burns off the dawn mists, revealing the bright green sedges, shifting sand bars, and sparkling waters of the bai. Forest buffalo are a near-constant presence, with forest elephant (previously only heard at night) now making more frequent daylight visits.

Other species often seen in Lango bai include red river hog, harnessed bushbuck, and sitatunga. The elusive bongo is sometimes spotted from the Camp, and at night the calls of hyaena carry across the adjacent savannah.

Lango offers a number of unique experiences, our favourite of which is the most simple – to walk out from the Camp and stroll along in the stream, heading for the bend where the bai opens out into an amazing marsh where herds of forest buffalo regard visitors with undisguised curiosity.

Lango’s birdlife is equally compelling. The mineral salts in the bai attract impressive flocks, which exhibit incredible choreography as they alight and take off again, or react to the sudden attack of a raptor.

Palm nut vultures adorn the trees around the bai - a species most birders have only ever read about. The fact that they are almost common here underlines just how special Lango is.
