Stanley's Camp Ngamiland
Set in an amphitheatre of Ebony and Sausage Trees on the
southern tip of Chief's Island, in 260,000 acres of untamed African bush,
Stanley's Camp accommodates only 16 visitors. Bordering the southern section
of the famous Moremi Game Reserve this private concession is located by
definition in seasonal delta. The flood waters arrive in June, though there is
often navigable water all year round due to the presence of the Mboro River.
The beautifully-appointed tents evoke an atmosphere of "classic Africa," with
hand-crafted beds, antique furniture and oriental carpets combining to create
surroundings of colonial-era luxury. Stanley's Camp and it's sister property,
Baines' Camp, are owned and operated by Sanctuary Lodges & Camps.
Stanley’s is a small luxury camp consisting of 8 classic styled safari tents raised on wooden decking. The delicately appointed tents exude classic Africa; handcrafted beds dressed with the finest linen, antique furniture individually selected and oriental carpets that transport you to early 19th century Africa. Each unit offers en-suite facilities, a private balcony and is equipped with a hairdryer, ceiling fan, and in-room safe. The camp also provides a torch as well as complimentary mosquito repellent & toiletries. Hammocks and Morris chairs on the decks are perfect for relaxation in the African sunshine.
Electricity is supplied by a combination of silent packed generator and battery system allowing 24-hour power supply. The main building is raised on decking and offers extensive views over the surrounding floodplains. Stanley's is carefully blended into the existing tree line, its main support being a large sausage tree.
Activities: The adjacent bush around camp is rich with excitement: on game walks, day and night time drives, and mokoro excursions, guests can track a wide variety of big-game species, from Giraffe and Elephant to Lion and Leopard.
Game-drives are conducted in custom built open vehicles, which offer unencumbered views. Game drives are conducted early morning and late afternoon or as otherwise requested (subject to availability). The accompanying professional guides are among the best in Botswana. As Stanley’s Camp is situated on a private concession, night drives are offered and usually combined with the afternoon activity.
Walking activities are offered throughout the year and are lead by armed professional guides. The walks are highly educational and offer a completely different perspective of the Botswana's bush. Mokoro (dugout canoe) activities are offered most of the year, water levels permitting.
Elephant Activity (additional cost): As part of a unique learning adventure, visitors accompany our semi-habituated herd on daily foraging treks. Immersed in elephant life, warm bonds of kinship grow from a newly found appreciation of these gentle giants. Please note that no riding is offered. The main objective is to initiate a relationship between the guests and elephants. The activity encompasses a leisurely paced walk with a trio of semi-habituated elephants, becoming personally acquainted with them, observing and interacting with them and a picnic lunch in their company.
