Sanctuary Stanley's Camp (Okavango Delta) Botswana
Set in an amphitheater of ebony and sausage trees on the southern tip of Chief’s Island, Stanley’s Camp sits amidst 260,000 acres of untamed and untrammeled African bush.
Bordering the southern section of the famous Moremi Game Reserve this private concession is located by definition in seasonal delta. That said, the high water regimes of the past 4 years, has seen water in residence year round.
The area is home to a wide variety of big game including elephant, buffalo, giraffe, hippo, lion, leopard, cheetah and wild dog.
Stanley’s is a small luxury camp consisting of 8 classic styled safari tents.
The delicately appointed tents exude classic Africa; hand crafted beds dressed with the finest linen, antique furniture individually selected and oriental carpets that give a delightful glimpse at colonial Africa.
Each unit offers en-suite facilities and a private balcony. Electricity is supplied by a combination of silent packed generator and battery system allowing 24-hour power supply.
