Set in an amphitheatre of ebony and sausage trees on the southern tip of Chief's Island, Stanley's Camp borders the southern section of the Moremi Game Reserve. This private concession is located by definition in seasonal delta. The floodwaters arrive around June, although there is often navigable water all year round due to the presence of the Boro River. The area is home to a wide variety of big game including elephant, giraffe, hippo, lion, leopard, cheetah and wild dog, as well as one of the largest buffalo populations in the Okavango Delta.
The camp consists of 8 classic safari tents on raised wooden decking, each individually designed and with expansive views over the surrounding floodplains. Each room offers en-suite facilities, a private deck and ceiling fan and is furnished with African antiques the that exude a classic and understated elegance that harks back to the explorers of the 19th century.
The main area consists of a lounge and dining area with incredible views over the floodplains. There is also a bar, a small library and curio shop. After a hot day of game viewing the swimming pool provides a welcoming relief as well as a further opportunity for game viewing across the plains.
The camp is accessible by air from Maun (15 minutes) and Kasane (1 hour 30 minutes). The drive to the camp from the airstrip is approximately 20 minutes.
Game drives (including night drives), walking safaris, mokoro excursions, seasonal water lunches and private candlelit dinners. The unique and educational elephant interaction is also available (additional cost).
Read what our previous clients thought of Sanctuary Stanley's Camp
This place felt like we were worlds away from everything. Despite the drought the game viewing was excellent, even to the point where a promiscuous elephant almost stampeded our final nights dinner. Loved the tents and 'glamping'. The staff here went out of their way to make us feel special.
Again it was very beautiful out back. But the tents are pretty worn down. The game viewing was terrible, we hardly saw anything. We spoke to some people who stayed at different camps in the delta and they saw tons of stuff, one of the camps being sanctuary chief's camp. Again the people were very nice and accommodating but not enough to cover up how disappointing…
