Over Sango Safari Camp
Gelegen aan de grens van het Moremi Game Reserve en in de buurt van een traditioneel dorp, kunt u vanuit Sango Safari Camp zowel de Afrikaanse dieren als de Afrikaanse bevolking ontmoeten. Met zes tenten van canvas, die uitzicht hebben over de vlaktes van Moremi, is de intimiteit van dit kamp goed bewaard gebleven. Het hele kamp is gebouwd in rustieke stijl en past daardoor mooi bij de uitgestrekte savannen. Met mogelijkheden om game drives te maken in een 4-WD voertuig, te wandelen in het natuurgebied en 's avonds nog op zoek te gaan naar roofdieren, zult u zich hier geen moment vervelen. De maaltijden, lokale drankjes en de safari-activiteiten zijn inbegrepen. Ook voor het zien van prachtig mooie vogels bent u in dit waterrijke gebied op de goede plek.

• Game drives
Het Moremi Game Reserve ligt in het oostelijke deel van de Okavango Delta en kenmerkt zich door dichte begroeiing van acacia’s. Het wild in Moremi is zeer gevarieerd en talrijk. In dit ca. 3.000 km² grote gebied, variërend van savannelandschap en moerassige gebieden tot dichte wouden, komen onder meer vele antilopensoorten, giraffen, buffels, zebra’s en olifanten voor, maar ook leeuwen, luipaarden, hyena’s, cheeta’s en de bedreigde wild dogs.
Het grootste gedeelte is bebost land, maar het oostelijke en noordelijke gedeelte zijn een combinatie van harde grond, kreekjes, papyrus en bosland.
"a home away from home in the bush"
Situated in the beautiful Khwai concession close to Moremi this small familiar beautiful lodge in the middle of the bush is just perfect for those who want to be spoiled and enjoy without high prize luxury ...the tents are clean, spacious and cozy with a view to the Khwai river, you can sit on the veranda and have a little safari on your own without even moving...The staff is most welcoming, friendly, joyful and all time helpful, the food is just more than delicious. Big highlight were the game drives- the guide was very friendly,informative, most professional and always in a good mood. Seeing those leopards was very impressive but I also enjoyed being in nature and seeing all animals, no matter if big or small...
I stayed here 4 nights and was not impressed with the game guide. I know that you have no guarantees to see specific game, sometimes you see game, and sometimes you don't. My main issue with the game guiding was that we covered the same ground on multiple game drives. We stayed in the same general area of the concession, and we saw the airstrip and the soccer fields multiple times. Seriously, on our first game drive I saw the soccer field four times from four different directions. Upon arrival, I was asked what I wanted to see and I responded with Wild Dogs. I don't think there was a serious effort made to find the wild dogs, especially when these guides can easily pick up the radio and ask other game guides who work the same area. This is how they find the leopards and lions, through collaboration with each other. My first game drive in the concession, there was a report of a leopard. When we found her, I counted seven vehicles stalking this cat. Now, if you read another review from a traveler who was there at the same time, he collaborates this same game viewing experience. You will see the owner's response about having limited access points. This response is a bit sugar coated as there are other access points. Thanks to the TA forum, I knew there was more to this concession than the airstrip and soccer fields, so I requested that we go farther afield. Well guess what? We traveled down the Transit Road next to the concession for about 45 minutes and then entered the concession. Gee, why didn't we make this trip on one of the other game drives?? Thanks to radio chatter, we ended up finding a male lion walking by himself and a pack of wild dogs. We returned to the dogs that evening and they were not in the same area as the were in the morning, so radio traffic gave us their location. I honestly don't think the game guide showed a lot of enthusiasm. He answered questions, made stops when we asked. Rather irritating considering what you are paying for this experience. I really wish I hadn't tipped him. I think the tents are too close to each other, so you get to listen to the conversation of other guests or snoring. The tents were comfortable, but a fan would be nice as the tents are way too hot. Enclosing the shower with screen would be nice too. Mosquitoes were not an issue, but if they were, you would be bitten while showering, plus you would let them into the room when you come back into the tent. This place needs to be updated. Speaking of screening, if you know the first rains bring out termites by the billions, then why not screen in the dining area to eliminate this issue? We were inundated with them one night and had to postpone dinner by shutting off the lights for 45 minutes until they died off. Honestly, I thought it was great to experience the termites, but not having to wait on dinner. The morkoro drive was OK, but I think I would have preferred a game drive over this activity. Believe it or not, on the way back to camp my morkoro game guide entered the concession from a DIFFERENT access point and I rode on vehicle trails that I had not been on before!! Another annoyance was the screeching that went along with some of the singing. Fantastic the staff sings for you, a wonderful touch, loved it, but the loud screeching at the end by one woman was a bit much. Once is enough, but over and over and over is annoying. The location is really nice. You can sit on your patio and watch the hippos in the river (because it is way to hot to sit in your tent) or game grazing near by. There is a hide, which is more of an elevated viewing platform than a hide, but it is worth an hour or two sitting here than in your tent. The food was good and there was more than enough too. The afternoon snacks were OK and but were not very plentiful. There was a well stocked refrigerator with all kinds of beverages. The tent was clean, the beds comfortable, just too hot sometimes. Laundry service was efficient and the room safe worked just fine. The staff was fantastic and very friendly. They were more than happy to help you with whatever you needed, always saying hello to you and knowing your name too. The big question: Would I ever stay at Sango Camp again? No, never again. I know I would have a better safari experience staying longer at the other camps that I visited than staying at this camp.
There's no escaping it, Sango is in a beautiful location, right on the front doorstep of the open bush. Any animal is able to walk up to you as you sit on the veranda of your tent. This makes for a wonderful experience. The camp itself only has 6 tents. For me, they are too close together and lacking privacy. The other problem is that there is no ceiling fan or any other means of cooling the room. The food and the camp staff were excellent. However, the reason the travel agent booked this camp for me was for the wild dog experience in this area of the Kwai River. The safari driver was nice enough and immediately asked what it was we hoped to see. Wild Dogs please!! The 1st drive in the Kwai concession we did see a leopard which was great. The 2nd, nothing of note. The 3rd drive we went into Moremi reserve and found 2 lions. The 4th and final drive, again was into the Kwai concession and nothing of note was spotted, apart from the usual animals you would find on most safari drives in Africa. We appeared to cover the same ground on all 3 drives into the concession area, as we passed the "football pitch" and the airstrip each time. Now I know animals don't come to order but just felt a little more effort could have been made by the driver. A guest who stayed longer than us who we met later, told us that he got a little fed up of going over the same ground and asked to go further afield. This paid off and they found wild dogs. I suspect that part of the problem is that drivers become a little blaisay. Travel agents recommend a certain amount of cash per person is given as a tip to the driver each day. Drivers are obviously aware and used to this and therefore maybe don't need to try as hard to satisfy clients.
"Amazing safari experience"
We stayed at Sango for 3 nights in November. It is a smaller camp for only 12 guests and very lovely and professional staff. Very cozy, not too luxurious, totally at the river side to observe animals 24/7. Frank, our guide, did an excellent job on bringing us closer to understanding nature through his knowledge and experience, on tracking the animals and ensuring the maximum safari experience.
"Best camp of our trip"
We stayed at Sango for three nights in September,it was the fourth camp of the Botswana part of our trip. The tents are not huge but very comfortable all looking out over the river an are where there was frequent visits from animals. The staff are fantastic and make you feel so welcome,the food is good and we liked the fact the guides and other staff ate dinner with us. Our guide Dennis was a great guy,we saw more animals at Sango than anywhere else. ,Dennis tried to find animals which we wanted to see and managed all our challenges. We loved everything about Sango and would go back tomorrow it is an amazing place but the staff are very special which makes it what it is.
