Welcome to Stanley’s 

  • One of only 2 camps in a large private concession 
  • 8 guest accommodations all with views across the floodplain 
  • Contender for best habituated Elephant experience along with Abu Camp 
  • Owners have a strong reputation for high standards of service
  • Full range of safari activities on offer 

Stanley’s Camp is one of two camps situated in this huge concession that would be considered a proper mixture of wet and dry land epitomizing everything that is unique and wonderful about the Okavango Delta. It is a relatively small camp with just 8 guest tents, styled in the traditional sense of a safari camp but with some lovely touches of luxury that the owning company have become synonymous with across Africa. 

Much like its sister camp Baines, Stanley’s main focus is the experience with the habituated Elephants although here it is not possible to go on Elephant back safaris which we really like. It does not mean you get less time with them and the experience you do have is a more wholly enriching one. A full morning walk foraging with the 3 orphaned Elephants followed by a picnic lunch with them is a real highlight. We should just say that at Tailormade Africa we are generally against this kind of thing but we think that it is so well managed by the guardians, Doug and Sandi Groves that any fears of exploitation or ill treatment of the animals never comes up and we are happy to recommend it whole heartedly. It is just fantastic! 

The camp itself is lovely. Sanctuary Retreats whom own Stanley’s and its sister camp Baines, have a real knack of blending aesthetic luxury with traditional values of a safari camp and experience. The service standards are extremely high with the dining experience being of a very high order. 

The Elephant experience is a key factor to want to visit this camp but Stanley’s has the full card of safari activities to fall back on. The game viewing is very good, though can be a little seasonal and we would generally recommend combining this camp with another much drier camp in the Okavango or of course the Linyanti Game Reserve north of the Okavango.
