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.

  • It was FANTASTIC! Beautifully organised, everything worked like clockwork. We agreed that we had the best support team ever (and we have experience) - all delightful, very professional and nothing was too much bother.

    It clearly couldn't have been a better route, such a wonderful mix of landscapes. And plenty of acclimatisation time. Nonetheless, I was glad of my summit oxygen.

    Kit excellent. Double good mattresses made for most comfortable trek camping ever. Tents v good. Mess tent pretty windproof, which was vital for enjoyment. Best camp loo ever!

    My favourite day was Shira Cathedral. Amazing.

  • Hi Lisa,

    The safari trip was excellent! The stay, the food and the people were all very nice. We were happy to have Ryan and Stanley as our game drive guides they brought us up close to the animals and Ryan gave very good information throughout.

    Would definitely recommend to friends who are interested in safaris :)

    Also, thanks much for your help, particularly keeping the room for my Brother and his wife they’ve enjoyed the safari very much too!

    Best regards,
    Woan Chyi

  • We had a fantastic time and all the arrangements worked perfectly.
    We were very impressed with the quality and service levels of all 4 locations visited and it was truly a holiday of a lifetime.
    Thank you to you and to Lisa for giving us this experience.
    Particular highlights for us – really the whole experience, but of particular impact:
    Breathtaking scenery at Cathedral Peak Hotel
    Rhino Ridge game drives incredible, thanks to guide (we had their head guide, Hala, who’s knowledge, enthusiasm, kindness, interaction, ability to spot wildlife was out of this world)
    Luxury of Rhino Ridge (shower, food, views, service)
    Immersion in nature, torch lit meal on last night and beach trip at Kosi Forest Lodge
    Level of service, quality of food throughout
