Rod and Tam and their staff went out of their way to make us feel like this was truly our home away from home. Good food, comfortable, clean lodging, good conversation and extraordinary surroundings all made for a wonderfully memorable visit...not only with the rich and abundant wildlife but also with the BaAka Pygmy people who welcomed us warmly and...

We did not know too much about Sangha Lodge before arrival since it was not in our original plans. End up there was such a stroke of luck. Service and Beauty of the place rival each other in outstanding standards. Each late afternoon, after visiting the pristine natural wonders of the region, we had a cold beer facing the most...

We are very glad you had such a great visit, we do our very best to have all who come here experience the best of the rainforest in as much comfort as is possible in this remote place. Despite all that has been written about Central African republic, we hope people will understand that Dzanga Sangha is an outpost of...

If you dream of remote locations with pristine rainforest around you, lovely and interesting people and good food, Sangha Lodge is a must! We stayed 4 nights there, visited Dzangha Bai and enjoyed Rod and Tam's hospitality.

We recently returned from a week's stay at Sangha Lodge and Dzanga Sangha Park and all we can say is 'WOW!". The setting of the lodge is absolutely stunning and simply unlike anything you'll find elsewhere in Africa, with huge curtains of pristine rainforest extending down to the mesmerizing river. The lodge's location in a small clearing at the edge...

We (my husband, myself, and our 9 year old son) visited the Sangha Lodge in July 2015 and highly, highly recommend it. It's as good as it gets in the region and while you shouldn't expect luxury (the rooms are very nicely done, but ultimately wood huts with screens, beds under mosquito nets, and a desk), you can expect the...

I've just returned from an eight night stay in Dzanga Sangha Special Reserve and Sangha Lodge and the place is magic! It's not luxury by any stretch but what it is is a clean, well- maintained and comfortable respite when you get back after a day of activity in the forest or a ride upriver to fish or BBQ. The...

This is an exceptional place run by exceptional people and no superlatives can really do it justice. Despite circumstances in the rest of the country that are far, far from ideal, Sangha Lodge offers an indication of what is possible when people put their heart and soul into a project and remain dedicated throughout. Rod and Tam greeted me as...

Sangha Lodge is an outstanding option for visitors to Dzanga Sangha National Park. Perfectly situated on a small bluff overlooking the Sangha River, the lodge is in a quiet location, up river from the town of Bayanga. It consists of six wooden and thatched roofed huts. One entire wall of my hut was screened, giving me an exceptional view of...

My mother and I stayed at Sangha Lodge in November 2012. I have nothing but compliments for the Lodge, its owner and the staff. It is a truly wonderful place. Its location is gorgeous, the staff was beyond helpful and we enjoyed our stay immensely. After a hellish trip overland from Cameroon, arriving at the Lodge was a godsend. The...
