Lango Camp is in the south-central part of Odzala-Kokoua National Park, on the edge of the savannah, within easy reach of the Lekoli and Mambili rivers. In the heart of the Congo Basin, the world’s second largest expanse of tropical rainforest, it’s a perfect spot from which to experience a host of forest biodiversity, rare wildlife and significant populations of forest elephant.
Accommodation & Facilities
The design of the six guest rooms has been influenced by the buildings of the local B’Aka Pygmy groups. The construction is from locally sourced materials, sustainably harvested hardwoods, bamboo and raffia palm matting, and ensures that the camp blends seamlessly into the remote forest environment. Each of the rooms is built on three to four metre stilts and overlooks the Lango Bai. The camp is connected via series of raised walkways which creates a treehouse-like atmosphere. The bar, lounge and dining area overlook the bai and there is a star deck where guests can relax and enjoy a pre-dinner drink.
Wildlife & Activities
Activities focus mainly on wildlife viewing at the bai, on Lekoli River and the surrounding savannah. Although driving may be required to reach some remote spots, most exploration is on foot or by boat. Guests can expect to see various primates, plentiful bird life, forest elephants, bongo, forest buffalo, crocodiles and possibly hippo.
