Welcome to Stanley’s Concession 

This very exclusive and private concession, owned by Sanctuary Retreats, lies in the Eastern region of the Okavango Delta close to the Boro River. There are just 2 camps in a vast wilderness area of 115,000 Hectares. Both camps are owned and managed by one company who have an excellent reputation for high-end safari camps and lodges in Africa. 

Being on the Eastern edge of the Delta the floodwaters can be sporadic from year to year on reaching this beautiful part of the Okavango making wet safari a little less reliable. It should be noted however that the land based game viewing of Vehicle safari and walking safaris are excellent all year round with wildlife numbers being very good. 

Both camps share the benefits of the highly respected Elephant rehabilitation project of Stanley’s and offer guests quite extraordinary experiences with the Rehabilitated resident Elephant. It is hard to overstate quite how well managed this concession is or the quality of the Elephant safaris. Importantly there is no focus on Elephant back safari but rather walking alongside, hand in trunk whilst the Elephant do what Elephants do. Eat, walk, drink and bathe. 

Birding in the varied ecosystem of riverine, grassland and forest habitat is particularly good with the guiding expertise to match. The concession is a worthy investment of your time combined with a more traditional game viewing region of Botswana.
