Overview

Sango Safari Camp is an intimate, traditional tented camp located within the community-run Khwai Concession on the edge of the Okavango Delta, northern Botswana. Accessible by air into nearby Khwai Airstrip, the camp is nestled by the Khwai River and ideally located for the adjacent Moremi Game Reserve. This area’s contrasting topography of river, floodplain, open grassland and shady forest is home to a diverse concentration of bird and wildlife. Game viewing is particularly strong during the Jun/Oct dry season, when large numbers of elephant, lion, leopard, hyena and wild dog can be seen, plus occasional sightings of cheetah, hippo, and giraffe.

The camp’s main area is an open-plan, timber and canvas construction, with sweeping views of the floodplains. Spacious and comfortably furnished, it comprises a lounge with a bar and a selection of reading materials, and a dining area with a long table for communal meals. Outside, a viewing deck allows guests an opportunity for bird and wildlife spotting. There is a boma with a campfire and seating, and a pleasant plunge pool with loungers.

Activities include full and half day game drives within both the Khwai Concession and Moremi Game Reserve, plus mokoro canoe excursions (water levels permitting), and cultural visits to nearby Khwai Village. The camp’s location within the private concession means that night game drives are also possible.

The camp accommodates up to 12 guests in six ensuite Meru-style canvas tents. Each spacious tent is simply furnished and comprises one double or two single beds, fitted with mosquito nets. There are bedside tables with reading lamps, plus a wardrobe and safe. Each ensuite bathroom contains a washstand with basin and mirror, a flushing toilet, and an open air shower. Outside is a private veranda with seating.

Children of two years and over are welcome, and an extra bed can be added to any tent in order to accommodate up to three people, although note that this formation does impose limits on space. All children under 12 must share a tent with an adult, and given that the camp is unfenced in a wilderness area, parents must keep their children under close supervision at all times. Although families are warmly welcomed at the camp, there are some age restrictions on activities. For reasons of safety, children under 12 are not permitted on mokoro canoe excursions, and those under 16 are unable to join walking activities. Children must be a minimum of 6 years of age to participate in game drives.

Sango Safari Camp offers a friendly, relaxed atmosphere with simple but comfortable facilities. It is a good, moderately priced option for travellers seeking an authentic safari experience amidst northern Botswana’s spectacular scenery and abundant wildlife.

  • Hello Lisa. We came back from our trip two weeks ago now so I am sending this email much later than I wanted to. Nevertheless, what I wanted to say was thank you very much for helping us organise an amazing trip. Our days in Mafia Island to celebrate my 50th birthday were exactly what I wanted them to be: a fantastic time with the family doing activities that we all love and enjoy in a relaxing, unusual, beautiful place full of sun, surrounded by water, wildlife and friendly people. We swam with whale sharks, did a lot of snorkeling, had two picnics on a beautiful sand bank, watched the sunset over the sea, did a bird watching excursion and tried scuba diving.
    All merit to you because Pole Pole in Mafia Island was your recommendation. I never heard of Mafia Island before and didn't consider Tanzania to start with. It was an amazing place to stay: friendly, relaxed, beautiful, comfortable, with great food and fantastic service. Thanks not only for finding the place but also for your patience as we prepared the trip and I explored options and decided what I wanted. All went incredibly well (places, transfers, flights) and we had a very memorable time together that we will all remember forever - as we still do the safari trip to South Africa you organised for us 5 years ago.
    I cannot wait to plan another trip! I am already thinking about where and when. Hopefully no pandemic will get in the way this time. And I will come to you as my favourite travel agent.
    I copy in this message the Tourdust office because I want them to know how good you are and how much I appreciated the different trips you organised for us (including the trip to India for my parents that was cancelled due to Covid). I cannot thank you enough :o)
    Kind regards, Carol

  • Hi Lisa
    It was a fantastic experience, thanks very much. All the arrangements were seamless and our guiding/support team were excellent, if there is a way for you to formally commend the team to your ground operators then I would be grateful if you could do that, they really were brilliant.
    Many thanks for your help in arranging the trip, and for your patience during the multiple re-arrangements over the past couple of years.
    Kind regards, John

  • Can't praise tour dust enough, they helped us to create a holiday of a lifetime that has given us family memories we will treasure forever. From start to finish the whole experience was exactly what we wanted and more. Due to covid we waited 2 and a half years for this trip but worth the wait.
