Highlights

Accommodation

Sanctuary Stanley’s Camp is built on a 260,000 acre private concession in the renowned Okavango Delta. This traditional safari camp has a large lounge area and dining area with incredible views over the floodplains in front of camp. The main area features a bar from where refreshing drinks are always served with a smile, a small library area and curio shop.

From the swimming pool – a real treat after a hot day of game viewing – guests can watch giraffe and other plains game march across the savannah and sometimes catch a glimpse of rare wild dogs. Everything about Sanctuary Stanley’s Camp is built to the highest ecological standards so that we don’t damage this highly sensitive area.

Traditional Safari Tents

Immerse yourself in the authentic safari experience with the camp’s ten meticulously designed canvas tents, showcasing a blend of African antiques and timeless elegance.

Stanley’s Camp is a testament to the spirit of adventure and sophistication, where the legacy of exploration is seamlessly interwoven with modern comforts and exceptional hospitality.

Game Drives

Game drives in this region are unique, as water crossings are part of the adventure, and watching zebra standing belly-deep in water, grazing, is a sight to see. Even giraffe will cross water up to their hocks. During higher water levels, game drives will be combined with motorised boating excursions and traditional dug out canoes called Mokoros.

Sanctuary Stanley’s Camp is set in a private concession which means we can also venture out at night on exciting game drives to see the many nocturnal animals that live here. The evening drive starts after sundowner cocktails, using a spotlight to identify nocturnal creatures including the ones that are easier to catch a glimpse of in the dark, like hyena and leopard. Tiny fireball eyes that seem to levitate through the air and reappear again in different trees are bush babies, just one of several different creatures to be found.

Experience the serenity and stillness of this flooded wonderland, where time slows down to a gentle pace.
