Of course, the primary draw of Odzala is the unique opportunity to view eleven species of primates including Western lowland gorilla and chimpanzee. However, many animals can be seen directly from the camp. Nocturnal visitors to the bai include bongo, leopard, and red river hog, while cheeky Guereza Colobus monkeys are frequently seen throughout the camp.
There are many activities available in this area. Because of its ideal location near the water, Lango Camp is the perfect base from which to explore the Lekoli and Mambili Rivers, whether by motorboat, traditional pirogue, or even kayak. Expert guides lead game drives and walking safaris through the bai and savanna. But the featured activity at the camp is the gorilla tracking experience. Skilled trackers lead hikes through the marantaceae forest to observe these gentle giants in their natural habitat, and there are plenty of opportunities to spot a host of other wildlife on the way.
Lango Camp’s common area is also constructed on raised, interconnected decks. The lounge, bar, and dining room all overlook the bai and are made from natural materials such as locally woven raffia palm panels. Raised walkways wind through the forest connecting the guest rooms to the public areas. After dinner, guests can relax around the fire pit on a dropped deck that offers superb views of the marsh.
