Sango Safari Camp

Some of the pilots employed by the bush airlines are “earning their hours”, as was the one from Boston who had flown us safely from Kasane to Oddballs Camp. The runway at Oddballs camp was short, perhaps just adequate for a successful takeoff by an experienced pilot. A month before two planes had crashed on takeoff, one with fatalities. As we taxied towards the tree line it was a relief as the plane rose just above them .

Wildlife viewing at Oddballs had been on foot. At Sango the safaris were by jeep, mokoro, and as needed bush walk. The camp, by the river Khwai, borders the eastern edge of the Moremi reserve, and the terrain was somewhat drier than that at Oddballs.

Mokoro

In the cooler late afternoon to evening, we would use the Mokoros to navigate the Khwai River –purest relaxation, and an opportunity to see crocodiles and hippos in the river or coming down to shore from the grasslands.
