Set in an amphitheatre of Ebony and Sausage Trees on the southern tip of Chief's Island, in 260,000 acres of untamed African bush, Stanley's Camp accommodates only 16 visitors. Bordering the southern section of the famous Moremi Game Reserve this private concession is located by definition in seasonal delta. The flood waters arrive in June, though there is often navigable water all year round due to the presence of the Mboro River. The beautifully-appointed tents evoke an atmosphere of "classic Africa," with hand-crafted beds, antique furniture and oriental carpets combining to create surroundings of colonial-era luxury.

This intimate camp is gathered around a large sitting and dining area which affords magnificent views over the floodplains of the Okavango Delta. From the swimming pool, watch giraffe and other plains game march across the savannah. You might even catch a glimpse of rare wild dogs stalking the plains. This is one of the best places in the world for seeing buffalo in large numbers, with herds often exceeding 2,000.

Stanley’s is a small luxury camp consisting of 8 classic styled safari tents raised on wooden decking. The delicately appointed tents exude classic Africa; handcrafted beds dressed with the finest linen, antique furniture individually selected and oriental carpets that transport you to early 19th century Africa.

Each unit offers en-suite facilities, a private balcony and is equipped with a hairdryer, ceiling fan, and in-room safe. The camp also provides a torch as well as complimentary mosquito repellant & toiletries. Hammocks and Morris chairs on the decks are perfect for relaxation in the African sunshine.

The main building is raised on decking and offers extensive views over the surrounding floodplains. Stanley's is carefully blended into the existing tree line, its main support being a large sausage tree.

Electricity is supplied by a combination of silent packed generator and battery system allowing 24-hour power supply.

The main dining area is a comfortable, airy place in which to get together and enjoy delicious meals by candlelight. Sit down to delicious gourmet cuisine, accompanied by vintage wines in an alfresco setting.

Activities at Stanley's Camp include day and night game drives in open 4WDs, and during June-September, when the water levels are high, they also offer excursions in mokoro canoes along the channels of the Delta.

As an unforgettable option, guests of Sanctuary Stanley’s Camp can experience an unforgettable elephant activity. A unique learning adventure, visitors accompany the semi-habituated herd on daily foraging treks. Immersed in elephant life, warm bonds of kinship grow from a newly found appreciation of these gentle giants. (Please note that no riding is offered.) The main objective is to initiate a relationship between the guests and elephants. The activity encompasses a leisurely paced walk with a trio of semi-habituated elephants, becoming personally acquainted with them, observing, and interacting with them, followed by a picnic lunch in their company. You are invited to discover the elephants, from the bristled ends of their long tails to the tip of their powerful yet sensitive trunks. Marvel at their big ears, thoughtful eyes and enormous padded feet. Trace the textures of their skin and the silken polish of their ivory. Explore the astonishing bonds of kinship forged over more than a decade between the elephants and their guardians in a wilderness of mesmerizing beauty.


The hotel offers a snack bar/deli. A bar/lounge is on site where guests can unwind with a drink. Guests can enjoy a complimentary breakfast. An Internet point is located on site and high-speed wireless Internet access is complimentary.

The main dining area is a comfortable, airy place in which to get together and enjoy delicious meals by candlelight. Sit down to delicious gourmet cuisine, accompanied by vintage wines in an alfresco setting.

The food is served by waiters, and tables are small and intimate, although occasionally guests will join up to form a larger table. Early morning breakfast before the activities was muffins, cereal, fruit and toast with also a cooked option. A delicious picnic lunch with salad and a beef lasagna. 

Tea times, before the afternoon activity, were excellent and varied – home-made scones with cream and jam, coconut cake, mini-quiches and spring rolls were offered.

Dinners served in the main area were excellent. It start of asparagus with bacon and onion marmalade, followed by a choice of either Butternut fish or roast lamb, with a rich and creamy fruit cheesecake to follow. The second night goats cheese were served  in filo pastry with a spicy tomato relish, followed by Kudu curry on pancakes, or roasted chicken with rice and vegetables. To follow there was a sticky toffee pudding with cream.
