    Great report!!

    You got lucky on the Bongos!
    We came to the ecosystem during what we believed was the “best time of the year” to see them, visited the Bai for 3 full days, and didn’t see them.

    Regarding the white-bellied pangolins – they can be seen, but we saw 1 after many many hours of seraching (on night 6 of 9). We also almost missed it, but luckily Luc paid attention to the leaves rustling, which I dismissed, thinking it was a small lizard that ran off.

    Regarding the red river hogs – I think they rarely visit the bai during the day. You’d have to get there really early in the morning or stay later toward the evening… maybe I’m wrong – but that’s what I gathered. Charles Foley saw them when he stayed the night at the Bai.

    Good stuff!! Happy to see that this place keeps delivering the goodies 🙂

    Great Report Daniel. I help out at Sangha lodge, mostly remotely, I’m heading out there at the start of June for a 3 week trip via Cameroon and Lobeke National park. Short notice I know, but there will be 2 free spots in the vehicle, If anyone is interested in joining me, let me know. It’s not an easy road but this is an opportunity to spend some time in a very special location.

    Sounds like a great trip Ewan! If you are going to spotlight in Lobeke I will be very interested to hear if you encounter African Golden Cat like in this report: Looks like a great place anyway!

    Thanks. I know that report very well. That and a thread on here about Id-ing squirrels and galagos was invaluable to me when I first went there last summer. I will write up the Cameroon part of trip and anything new I find round Sangha, so keep an eye out. We have kayaks now so hopefully I’ll find the otter this time

    Please post the animals you can not identify on iNaturalist. Maybe that community can help.
