Mango Opinion

Lango Camp is a spectacular time! The highlights are hiking in the pristine rainforests in hopes of seeing wild chimpanzees, wild lowland gorillas and tons of monkeys. Hiking through the Lango swamps is adventurous, muddy fun. Being physically fit to enjoy all the walking is a plus. There are tsetse flies but only in patches and the guides know exactly where so if you are prepared you do not have to worry about lots of bites. This is serious adventure and blows peoples minds.

Lango Camp consists of six creatively designed guest rooms, taking inspiration from the designs of the local B'Aka Pygmy groups. Natural locally sourced materials are used: sustainably harvested hardwoods, bamboo and raffia palm matting. This Odzala experience is undertaken from an intimate, sensitively constructed camp that leaves as light a footprint as possible and blend into this remote forest environment. It is set on the edge of the savannah with access to the Lekoli and Mambili rivers.

Lango Camp is situated in Odzala-Kokoua National Park in the remote north of the Republic of Congo (Brazzaville) - in the heart of the Congo Basin, the world's second largest expanse of tropical rainforest. Aside from a host of forest biodiversity, it holds Africa's densest population of western lowland gorillas and significant populations of forest elephant. It is also renowned as the richest forest block in central Africa for primates, with eleven diurnal species recorded and more than 100 mammal species - of which around 50 are classified as medium- or large-sized.

Lango's strategic location in the south central part of Odzala allows easy access to a variety of converging habitats.  A real highlight of your stay at Lango is the chance to explore the Lekoli and Mambili Rivers by motorboat, traditional pirogue, or even kayak.  Lango is also one of the few places in Africe where you can explore streams and marshes on foot.
