Why Sango Safari Camp is Eco-Friendly

Sango Safari Camp is located in one of the most unique Wildlife Areas in Botswana – on the banks of the Khwai River, close to the border of the Moremi Game Reserve. Developing and managing a Lodge in such a delicate area, remaining ‘green’ and reducing one’s carbon-footprint is of the utmost importance to us and the least we can do to contribute to the conservation of this incredible wilderness.

The Eco Friendliness of Chobe Elephant Camp

Chobe Elephant Camp is based in the semi-arid bush of Africa – overlooking the floodplains of the Chobe River.

However once we had experienced the extreme conditions we realised that this was not the ideal material to use.

Through the Eyes of a Safari Guide

A distant lion roar broke the rhythmic monotonous sound of a hippo munching grass near the campsite. I struggled up out of my sleeping bag to get my ear to the tent window, hoping they would roar again so I could estimate a direction and distance, we had been on Safari now for several days and had not yet managed to spot them.
