We had such an amazing time at Sango Camp at the end of our trip it was so sad leaving. Our guide, Dennis was fantastic! On our first day we saw so many animals and he even took us out on a late night drive where we saw a bush baby, herds of elephants, giraffe and so on. One evening on or way back we saw two lions trying to get at the hippos. And on our last morning Dennis drove us to the national park to show us two beautiful young lioness surrounded by zebras, Impala and giraffes which was just amazing! Boi is a fantastic manager and she always makes sure you feel at home and are happy with everything. The food is fantastic we enjoyed every meal we had the chef is amazing and announces the menu each evening after some singing. The rooms are simplistic but lovely and at night you can hear all the animals around you which is lovely. Boi, Dennis, Neo, Ntina, Frank and Duma to name a few, thank you so much for having us and making our stay so incredible, we will never forget it! Love to you all, Ella, Tom, Alan and Julia x

We stayed here last month for 2 nights. This is a wonderful and intimate lodge. Its tents all face a small river where hippos are always present. (can be a bit noisy at night as they do not eat quietly!). Elephants roam nearby and are present for most of the time.

We were welcomed by the staff upon our arrival with a welcome song. We were promptly shown our quarters; beautiful tent with wooden floors. Spotless, very comfortable mattresses, pillows and sheets. Bathroom was huge for a tent and outdoor shower worked just fine. There is a nice plunge pool steps away from the main building as well as a raised viewing deck from which to watch the scenery.

Meals were simple but plentiful and sufficient. Very enjoyable to have breakfast around the campfire.

Best of all of course were the safari rides. We had an excellent guide who found every animal we hoped to see.

Service at this lodge was excellent. All were only too happy to serve. Highest recommendation

What an amazing place, whilst there was no river / water front to look into the camp was excellently located overlooking a large grassed area which had a viewing platform.
The accommodation was great and very comfortable. Food was excellent and customer service was great.
Lovely atmosphere and would definatley return.

From the singing welcome to waving goodbye, the Sango team made our stay one to remember. The camp is quite small and as other people have said the tents are quite close together, but as we were in them only for sleeping that didn't really bother us. The tents are big, surprisingly cool considering there is no air con, and with lovely comfortable beds. The food was great, and it was lovely to have diner announced in song, this really did feel like a very happy camp. But we went for the wildlife and it didn't disappoint. The game drives were full of sightings and the guides knack for spotting it and then having the patience to wait until we could see it must be commended.Obi - stuck in the mud, and Dennis were both excelent guides and for a last morning sighting of lions, cheaters making a kill and then the lions again with a kill, Dennis, we thank you, it realy was the highlight. A lovely friendly, happy lodge and one I would thoroughly recommend and love to return to.

We truly enjoyed our two night stay at Sango. The lodge's location is superb, right next to the Moremi Reserve, although the guides tend to go around the concession area on the other side of Khwai river. The guide told us that there are more animals in the concession area but on the one occasion that we went inside the reserve, we definitely saw more animals (and couple of leopard sightings) during the morning drive.

In any case, the camp itself is quite cozy, with just 6 tents, so you would get to know the other guests pretty quickly. We've met some very interesting people during the 3 days at the camp - so the intimate setting of the camp helps in that aspect. The staff and the guides are very friendly, they are very sincere to make your stay at the camp an enjoyable one. The food is pretty good, and it was fun having the cook announce the menu before the dinner. The staff even had the welcome dance for us one night which was a lot of fun - so make sure you keep your camera (phone) handy which we didn't :)

Overall, I would recommend staying at Sango - the only thing I would think they might do is to venture out into Moremi Reserve more than once (as was the case for us).
