Lango Camp is tucked away in the south central section of the Republic of the Congo's Odzala-Kokoua National Park. This secluded camp provides guests with the opportunity to explore the forest, its rivers, and Lango Bai via game drives, walks, and boat rides.
Lango Camp is nestled in a dense forest with each of its six rooms elevated on stilts overlooking the Lango Bai. Canvas flaps lead you into your room with either two single beds or a double bed, along with an en suite bath with a hot shower and a brass sink. An upturned trunk provides storage space for your belongings. Each elevated room is surrounded by wraparound decks to ensure optimal views into the forest, and the best chance to spot the primates and other wildlife that live around the camp.
Wooden pathways link all the rooms to the main areas. The traditional building styles of the local people were used to create this camp. Naturally-sourced materials like wood, thatch, and raffia panels helps the property to blend seamlessly into the environment and also minimizes human impact. Stylish, rustic, African furniture is sprinkled throughout the property.
The lounge and dining of Lango Camp area sits under a thatched domed roof with a large wooden deck wrapping around both. Wade waist-deep through the clear rivers and streams to get a close-up view of the stunning nature that abounds here. Herds of buffalo and forest elephants with long trunks wander out of the thick forests to get a drink.
Take a steel boat on the Lekoli River to look for slender-snouted crocodiles, the various species of monkeys that live among the trees, or the birds that flutter about. Large flocks of African grey parrots and green pigeons meet in the mud flats. A safari drive takes you through savannahs and rivers.
In the evening relax the night away on the star deck and fire pit, chatting with other guests. Cocktails are enjoyed on the large comfortable sofas surrounding rustic coffee tables. Metal lamps provide light as the sun sets. Peruse one of the books provided to learn more about the species seen earlier during the day during your trek.
This is a remote area that is still infrequently visited, and it feels like an untouched part of Africa.Request Information
