A classic tented camp located on a private concession in the Okavango Delta, Sanctuary Stanley's Camp offers a varied game viewing experience as well as our unique elephant interaction.

Set among ebony and sausage trees, Sanctuary Stanley’s Camp is located on a 260,000 acre private concession bordering the Moremi Game Reserve. The natural wonders of the area constantly change over the seasons from lush green when the rain flows down the Angolan highlands, to dry savannah when the neighbouring Kalahari Desert tightens its grip on the terrain. The camp is the home of our unique Living with Elephants interaction. Walking with a trio of orphaned elephants is an uplifting experience and one that will remain with you long after you’ve left.

WHY SANCTUARY STANLEY'S CAMP

  • Offers the unique Living with Elephants interaction
  • Located on a private concession bordering the Moremi Game Reserve which means we can offer walking and night drives
  • Seasonal mokoro excursions available
  • Several active hyena dens close to camp
  • Traditional tented safari camp allows for an authentic safari experience

SANCTUARY RETREATS PHILANTHROPY (SRP)

Sanctuary Stanley's Camp together with the Living With Elephants Foundation, run by Doug and Sandi Groves works to secure the long term future of its elephant
ambassadors. Elephants can live for 70 years so when Doug and Sandi adopted Jabu,
Thembi and Morula, rescuing them from culling operations that had left them orphans, they knew they were making a life-long commitment to the trio - and that the trio would probably outlive the Groves by decades.

Sanctuary Stanley's is a classic tented camp with just eight tents built under an imposing African Ebony tree on a private concession overlooking the Okavango floodplains.
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.

CLASSIC SAFARI CAMP

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

The intimate camp features only eight safari canvas tents, each individually designed, furnished with African antiques that exude a classic and understated elegance that harks back to the explorers and colonialists of the 19th century. Each tent has a large wooden deck providing private areas where you can relax in a hammock while soaking in the surrounding sights and sounds or enjoy cocktails, before dinner is served in the spectacular dining mess.

Sanctuary Stanley's Camp's meals are all freshly prepared. The camp prides itself on its personalised service and this includes your culinary preferences and needs.

Come dine with us in spectacular locations where scrumptious meals are served. Where would you like to be seated? In the company of three elephants or with your feet in the cool waters of the Okavango Delta?

LUNCH WITH ELEPHANTS?

Wake up to the smell of freshly brewed coffee before indulging in a full English and continental breakfast before departing for your morning game viewing activity which could be a game drive, walking safari, mokoro excursion. If you decide to experience our unique elephant interaction activity you will enjoy a secluded bush brunch in the company of these three gentle giants, Jabu, Morula and Thembi - how many people can say they've had lunch with elephants in the bush? Afternoon tea is served just before your next game viewing activity and includes a delicious selection of warm scones, quiche's, biscuits and refreshing drinks. During your afternoon game viewing activity you might stop for sundowner drinks and snacks before heading back to camp for pre-dinner drinks and a three course dinner. If you are celebrating a special occasion we could arrange a special romantic private dinner right under the African sky.

WATER LUNCHES AND PRIVATE DINNERS

As Sanctuary Stanley's Camp is situated on a private concession we are also able to offer tranquil water lunches (seasonal). Indulge in a freshly prepared buffet style lunch while sitting with your feet in the cool shallow waters of the Okavango Delta as you immerse yourself in the sights and sounds of the surrounding area and wildlife. If you are celebrating a special occasion we could arrange a special private dinner by the pool, complete with lanterns and candles for a romantic night under the African stars. The standard and selection of all our meals are of the very highest quality, making it hard to believe that the camp is in the middle of the African bush.

With abundant wildlife roaming the area and several active hyena dens close to the camp, game viewing at Sanctuary Stanley's Camp allows for an exclusive experience. The Delta has an extraordinary concentration of wildlife, boasting vast congregations of elephant and buffalo, sightings of big cat predators, and even the endangered wild dog. Water crossings are part of the adventure and watching zebra standing belly-deep grazing is quite a sight to see. Venture out after dark on night game drives to catch a glimpse of the nocturnal animals like the bush baby, hyena and leopard.

RECENT SIGHTINGS AT SANCTUARY STANLEY'S CAMP

Various different elephants have been coming into the camp quite often in recent months and spending time near the rooms, thrilling guests as they gently roam through the camp, munching on branches very close to the protected viewing decks in each private room.

The nearby hyena den has three new inquisitive young ones running around which have been spotted by guests. Guests were incredibly lucky to spot a wild dog on the walkway to the guest rooms. The mother leopard and her cub seem to be doing well as our guides regularly see them.

Lions, zebras, giraffes, ostriches, baboons, rhinos, buffalos, hippos, llephant herds with lots of babies, impalas, warthogs and many different birds have been seen recently in the game reserve. This has been a particularly brilliant time to spot tree climbing lions.

The most commonly-spotted animals have been the cheeky hyenas who have been harassing the other predators, trying to steal their kills. It has been a very exciting time in the Delta.

Leopards have been spotted with some regularity, including nearby the airstrip where one was seen stalking an impala whilst other guests were lucky enough to see 4 leopards over 2 days spent with us.
