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.

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…Read full trip review
