Nestled on the edge of a bai, with forest behind and open wetlands in front, Lango Camp is a luxurious permanent camp in Odzala National Park. It is visited as the second stop, in a set six-night itinerary, with three nights spent here after three at its sister camp Ngaga based just outside the park. Entirely elevated above the damp forest floor on a series of stilts, wooden pathways link the rooms and main areas. Almost all of the camp has lovely views across the water, which make for great spots to sit and watch for wildlife creeping out of the forest.
Our view of Lango Camp
Lango Camp is totally unique in its location, offering its visitors a chance to explore the savannah, bais and forests of the Congo basin. The environment is the draw card here, not so much the wildlife. It is also a new camp in a remote location that has not seen tourism for decades. By employing local staff who don’t currently speak much English and have never worked in hospitality, they have set a real challenge for themselves and the service is not nearly as smooth as elsewhere in Africa. But the feel-good factor of supporting a venture such as this is high.
