Sangha Lodge's situation on the bank of the Sangha River make it the perfect spot to relax and unwind. Situated on the edge of the Dzangha Sangha reserve, we have easy access to all activities in the park as well as some of our own that we are developing. Spotlighting around the camp and from the boat to find some of the more unusual nocturnal species like Galago, Potto, Gennet, Civit, Golden Cat, Hammer-Bat and a number of owls.

We also have a small project with the Ba'aka people where we go into the forest and spend the night with them in a forest camp. The dimension of music and dance that you experience here is something that few westerners will ever see. All monies from this activity go directly to the Ba'aka to help with education and health issues.
