Sango Safari Camp

Sango Safari Camp | Okavango Delta, Botswana

Sango Safari Camp

Sango Safari Camp sits on a former hunting concession, now a protected wilderness zone, in the heart of the Okavango Delta. A classic safari camp, the emphasis at Sango is very much on excellent game viewing.

Sango Safari Camp is situated in the private Khwai community concession, in the North East of the Okavango. It borders the Moremi Game Reserve, the heart of the Okavango Delta, meaning guests at Sango have the best of both worlds; the privacy and flexibility that only private concessions can offer, and proximity to the best wilderness terrain in all of the Delta.

Its location its primary asset, Sango is a comfortable, mid-range safari camp, opened in 2010. Its design is simple and unpretentious, featuring canvas tents with open-air bucket showers that recall the classic safari camps of old.

The emphasis at Sango Camp is very much on the game-viewing experience, and thankfully the game-viewing here is excellent, with open vehicle game drives, night drives, guided walking safaris, and mokoro safaris (subject to water levels) all on offer. The terrain is varied, with permanent water, open grasslands, seasonal floodplains, and riverine forest supporting a diversity of wildlife.

Sango Safari Camp is an eco-tourism initiative, part owned by the local community. The land on which it stood used to be part of a hunting concession, but it has now been given over to wildlife conservation.
