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!
