Situated in the far southwestern corner of the Central African Republic, Sangha Lodge provides access to the ancient forests and unique wildlife of the Sangha River basin and the mystical Dzanga Bai.
Sangha Lodge is the brainchild of safari pioneers Rod and Tamara Cassidy, who continue to manage the lodge along with their son, Alon. The lodge is composed of seven guest chalets, each with an en-suite bathroom and private deck overlooking the river. Each room features hot-water showers, flushing toilets, ceiling fans, mosquito nets, charging stations, and limited wifi.
The lodge’s main area also overlooks the river and is the perfect place to relax after a day of remarkable activities in the area.
Located in the Central African Republic, Sangha Lodge is most often accessed from the Republic of the Congo via a boat journey up the Sangha River. Sangha combines well, both geographically and experientially, with the Congo’s Odzala-Kokoua National Park. Like Odzala, this part of the Central African Republic is covered by dense lowland rainforest occasionally broken by natural meadows known as “bais.” Expect an experience more reminiscent of the Amazon or Borneo than of the stereotypical African safari.
