Stanley’s Camp is a very surprising camp sometimes, often purported to be in an area where there is little game, we would not agree with this. Certainly on our last visit we had fantastic sighting of wild dogs with pups on two separate kills. Its just a short hop from Maun on a charter flight, and you get to quite a lovely concession which is shared by Stanley’s sister camp, Baines Camp, just a few kilometers away.

 

Stanleys is a classic bush camp with very comfortable accommodation that overlooks a nice floodplain. Its recently been refurbished to quite a high standard, so although it is designed to be rustic, in reality it is a step above.

 

The activities are based around day and night drives, we saw more hyena here than probably anywhere else on a night drive once. Here you can also get involved with the very excellent Elephant Experience.

 

Due to recent large floods in the area however, the driving region has been cut a little short, but this is just a seasonal issue when the floods are exceptionally high only.

Wildlife & Activities

 

Wildlife

 

With abundant wildlife roaming the area and several active hyena dens close to the camp, game viewing at Stanley's 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.

The Camp

Camp Overview

 

Set among ebony and sausage trees, 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.

Lodge Layout

 

Stanley's Camp has a large sitting and dining area which provides lovely views over the large floodplains in front of camp. After a day of game viewing, why not cool off in the swimming pool while watching wildlife make their way across the savannah.

Large wooden decks provide private areas where you can relax in hammocks or enjoy cocktails before dinner is served in the spectacular dining mess.

 

The Lounge is styled inside in a some what contemporary style, with a modern bar at the back and lounge suite area at the front on light coloured wooden flooring that extends to the side area where the dining mess is under the same canvas roof.

 

There is no outside veranda as such but steps leading down go to the fire pit area at ground level for after hours drinks.

Also outside and to the side is found a nice separate decked area with a plunge pool and sun loungers.

Room Description

 

Each of the eight safari canvas tents are individually designed, furnished with African antiques and exude a classic and understated elegance that harks back to the explorers and colonialists of the 19th century.

 

The Tents are of the old school Meru style and on raised decks, each accommodation overlook the floodplains in front with a lovely private deck and/or seating. Canvas and gauze doors open outwards to reveal the main sleeping area with its bed and writing table.

 

A door opening to the rear is entrance to the en en-suite bathrooms which are a simple affair with shower and hand basins.

Camp Environment

 

Located on a vast private concession bordering the Moremi Game Reserve, Sanctuary Stanley’s Camp is located on the southern tip of Chief’s Island. This private community concession is by definition in a seasonal delta and the floodwaters usually arrive around June.

 

The area is predominantly made up of wooodlands, palm island and floodpalins. As such it is a very good destination for general plains game inculding buffalo and the like and also pedators.
