The detail

Set amidst shady ebony and sausage trees overlooking the perennial Boro River, Stanley’s offers spectacular game viewing in an area rich in birdlife, wildlife and scenic beauty. Stanley’s Camp prides itself on its impeccable service, luxurious accommodation, decadent cuisine, making for an unforgettable African safari.

Stanley’s Camp offers ten individually designed canvas safari Tents, raised on wooden decking. startling, the tents exude understated elegance. The Tents feature an en-suite bathroom with a shower, fan, minibar, tea & coffee making facilities, lounge area, hairdryer, in-room safe, bathrobes, complimentary Wi-Fi, and a viewing deck.

The camp facilities include an expansive lounge, dining area, swimming pool, gym, bar, and laundry service.

Expert guides accompany guests on early morning and late afternoon game drives, and guided walking safaris afford the opportunity to track and follow Okavango wildlife and learn about the plants, birds, and habitats of this pristine wilderness. Tranquil mokoro trips provide a soothing way of viewing the multitude of water birds and pods of grunting hippos up close and afford a view of the plains wildlife from the water. The Living with Elephants activity is a must-do. This leisurely walk with two semi-habituated elephants is an extraordinarily enriching experience, giving guests a chance for personal interaction with these gentle giants.

Large numbers of plains game and predators are found throughout the year. After the recent introduction of rhino to this concession, the area is home to the Big Five. Predators abound and include several lion prides, leopards, cheetah, hyena, and the rare and endangered Wild dog. Large herds of elephant and buffalo, frequent the area. Blue wildebeest, steenbok, giraffe, greater kudu, impala, Burchell's zebra, and tsessebe abound, and the region’s flood levels attract the much-sought-after water-dwelling antelope species such as sitatunga and red lechwe. There are also unexpected little gems – such as the frogs and neon-blue water lilies.

The area is home to over 400 species of birds, including the African fish eagle, Bateleur, Crested and Wattled cranes, Black-tailed godwit, Sacred ibis, Green pigeon and the rare and elusive Pel’s fishing owl.

Sanctuary Stanley's Camp is ideal for solo explorers, couples, and families looking for a luxury safari getaway.

We had an absolutely amazing stay at Stanley's Camp in October 2015. We spent two nights there and it was our first stop in Botswana. We felt very welcome once we arrived and enjoyed the hospitality of the staff. They really paid attention to all the small details and made us feel comfortable at all times. We had an amazing lodge with a hammock, baboons walking by and elephants enjoying their meals at night. The food was absolutely delicious and the staff very open and willing to share their traditions with us. What is more, we had a great guide TT, taking us on game drives and serving us sundown drinks with gorgeous views.. not to mention the stunning Mokoro rides at sunset. All in all, we really did enjoy our stay even though it was absolutely boiling hot at the time of our stay.

A small very boutique lodge in the middle of nowhere is just amazing! having to fly in there are no tourists and it is just you and the wildlife! our guide made the trip memorable with amazing sun-downer drinks! And then the food which is great and not even to mention accommodation. It's in a tent but one would not believe how beautiful and luxurious they made it, a truly memorable experience and would definitely go back.

This was the first camp on our safari and the most rustic. They are tents with a bathroom attached and a porch in the back (with an amazing hammock) There is a bit of WiFi in the tents. We loved this place! Mel made us feel right at home and it was so quiet and peaceful. The first day we were on our way back from lunch and there was a huge elephant blocking the way to our tent. We went back to the main lodge and they walked us through the back way. We spent the rest of the afternoon watching the elephant who was just hanging out and eating steps from our deck. If you go do the elephant experience. It is a once in a lifetime amazing activity for everyone. My kids (young adults) were so excited and into the event it was a beautiful thing!

Unorgettable trip in South Africa
We have spent 12 days as a family in South Africa with my 3 children and my wife who is in a wheelchair. Thanks to Pascal, Safari.com consultant, we were able to spend an unforgettable moment with a great program while being well accompanied despite our constraints. I recommand particularly the "Monwana game lodge" for a safari in Hoedspruit. It's an amazing place with very nice people and a real family atmosphere. Thank you to the entire Safari.com team for this unforgettable trip.

Superior service, knowledgeable, transparent, amazing can-do attitude
These guys get 10/10. I have booked with them a few times. To Kruger National Park, including both public and private(concession) camps, flights and car hire. Their senior agent, Dolan is exceptional. Nothing is too much trouble. Attention to detail, transparency, and 'can-do' attitude are out of the ordinary. I recently came into contact with Tanya at safari.com as well. It looks like all their agents are similarly well trained. Thank you. I cannot recommend Dolan and his team highly enough.

Cape Town miracle
I was in Cape Town, South Africa recently for an athletic competition and had allowed myself a week of personal time to relax and properly conclude the trip, but had not bothered to plan a safari to occupy the time. I was skeptical of the cost and whether I would enjoy the experience, however a couple days into that final week it occurred to me, in a bit of a panic attack, what a waste it would be not to take advantage of this opportunity. I hopped online and started looking at flights to Johannesburg (almost all the safaris in SA start there with an early morning pick up), but it was basically impossible to get a flight early enough and/or to coordinate with the multiple safaris operating in or just outside of Kruger. With no apparent options available to turn my remaining 4 1/2 days into even a 3 day safari I stumbled on the most obvious website one could imagine, Safari.com. I'd completely given up negotiating all the variables on my own but here was a safari travel agent that might be able to help me .. and they were based right out of Cape Town, literally a stones throw from my lodgings. Serendipity, or so i hoped. I immediately sent out an email and crossed my fingers .. for roughly an hour and a half, at which point Dolan from Safari.com responded to me requesting I give him a call so that we could expedite potential arrangements. My in country phone plan wasn't able to make calls, but we arranged for him to call me and not 3 hours after being in the grip of despair Dolan got through to me and far from notifying me of how absurd it was to hold out hope for a literally, last minute safari adventure with barely 4 days available to me, he had already worked out all the details I'd sent and created a preliminary safari trip that would bypass Johannesburg airport for a flight the next morning to a closer, much, much smaller airport where I would be picked up taken, not to a 3 day safari, but a full 4 day safari, then back to the tiny, tiny airport for a return flight to Cape Town with 2 hours to spare for my return leg all the way home. It almost feels like an afterthought, after the minor miracle Dolan was able to conjure up, but the safari itself at Simbavati Lodge was just an absolutely stunning experience. The single "tent" he booked me was as luxurious as any 4 star hotel I've stayed in, the game drives, one every morning, one every evening were more amazing than I could have ever imagined, and the food, 3 meals a day with snacks and an open bar was sublime. I could go on about the wonderful staff, or the wonderful other safari goers you can meet and grab a drink with, or the different animals walking through the open lodge facilities daily .. but I've gone on long enough. I'll simply conclude by saying .. safari, absolutely, yes, do it, it is amazing. And when you do decide, Safari.com will do you right and if you have the pleasure of working with Dolan, do give him my thanks .. the entire experience was the best part of my trip :)

A great company
What to say! We planned a South African Safari for 2020 with Safari.com. We researched companies and took a chance on one we had never heard of before. Henry Franklin was our agent, we gave him our budget and wish list. He came up with a wonderful looking trip and we made our choices! Then came Covid, preventing us from going. We couldn’t have been in better hands. Henry rebooked everything for the next year. He kept us updated on how things looked there. When in 2021, we decided it still looked iffy, he rebooked us a second time for 2022. We couldn’t have been happier with the service we had in a rough time for all. We had a wonderful experience on our trip when we finally got to go!! Henry had everything so well organized and gave us a detailed list of what transfer companies would be meeting us and when. When Airlink bumped us and put us on standby returning from Victoria Falls, we called the concierge number Henry had given us and Catherine worked hard on this and got us back on our flight. The Safari.com team had our back and we have no regrets. Would definitely use them again. Our lodging was wonderful, saw the big 5 within first 2 drives. Henry definitely knew the territory and did a great job matching what we wanted with where he suggested we go and stay. Thanks Safari.com, Henry and Catherine!

I've recently interacted with Dolan and hands down he's been the best travel agent that I've every worked with. He was a wealth of experience and knowledge which shows volumes. He took into consideration my budget and my individual needs to tailor make a package with recommendations for my preference,he knows Kruger and Greater Kruger like the back of his hands and I will wholeheartedly recommended his services. He is truly an asset to his institution.
