On the banks of the Sangha river, hidden amongst riverine trees sits the Sangha Lodge.

lodge details


A basic and comfortable lodge.


Sangha Lodge overlooks the Sangha River, in the Dzanga-Sangha Special Reserve and provides access to the Dzanga National Park.

Accommodation & Facilities

The 7 bungalows are all traditionally made from wood and thatch; there are 3 standard rooms, 2 rooms with a shared bathroom and 2 family rooms. Rooms are en-suite with hot and cold running water, a shower and flush toilet. The large nets are completely encased with mosquito netting for a good nights sleep!

The dining area has large tables for the guests to dine communally and there are sensational wide views looking over the Sangha River. The bar is well stocked with cold beers and drinks, ice is made from bottled water so a refreshing drink is always available at the end of the day and there is no need to worry about contamination.


The kitchen is small but still managed to produce good food; a combination of Western and African flavours is generally served.


The main activities here are visiting the Dzanga National Park to track the rare Western Lowland Gorillas and going to Dzanga Bai to find the Forest Elephants. However there is a lot more to do in the area for those wanting to spend more time here. The birding is fantastic, as is the fishing where you can go on the hunt for a Goliath Tiger Fish. There are sundowner boat trips down the Sangha and Babongo Rivers and spotlighting for nocturnal species. Guests also have the opportunity to join the local Ba’aka people on a net hunt!

Responsible Tourism

The lodge is run for the purpose of sustainable tourism and focuses on community involvement and development in the hope that it will become a model for sustainable tourism in Africa.

Child Policy

Please contact us regarding the child policy for this camp and bear in mind that only people aged 16 and over can track the gorillas.
