It’s a remote and untouched slice of heaven, where curtains of prime rainforest envelope the eco friendly Sangha Lodge, perched high on the banks and offering breathtaking views over the Sangha River. It is here, amongst vast forests pulsating with the song of insects, frogs and birds, that unusual, elusive animals and birds hide – pangolins, picathartes, bongos and lowland gorillas. Forest elephants roam the Dzanga Bai, where 40 – 150 will often be spotted at any given time. Spectacular waterfalls, the most gigantic trees you’ll ever lay eyes on, scenic hikes, guided night walks, relaxing sundowner boat trips complete with a gin and tonic, and a day out net hunting with the local Ba’aka pygmies are just some of the highlights that await you.
The seven bungalow lodge is by no means luxurious, but you will find hot and cold running water, en suite flush toilets, ice cold beers, hearty food and outstanding hospitality where you are welcomed like a long lost friend. This is an exceptional place run by two of the most gracious, welcoming people you will ever meet on your travels. Rod and Tam have poured heart and soul into Sangha and the surrounding environment. Over the years, they have rescued over 70 pangolins and hand raised many orphans from the bushmeat trade, including several smaller animals like Blue duiker and Brush-tailed porcupine.
Set like a safe oasis in the Central African Republic, in the Dzanga-Sangha Special Reserve, this place is magic!
