Set in an amphitheatre of ebony and sausage trees on the southern tip of Chief’s Island, the small and intimate Stanley’s Camp borders the southern section of the Moremi Game Reserve. This private concession is in a seasonal delta area, with the floodwaters arriving around June, although there is often navigable water all year round due to the Boro River. Stanley’s Camp offers a luxurious and memorable safari holiday in the Okavango Delta, Botswana with the chance to experience an elephant interaction with habituated elephants.
The area is home to a wide variety of big game including elephant, buffalo, giraffe, hippo, lion, leopard, cheetah and wild dog.
Game viewing is extremely good with excellent numbers of predators and plains-game on offer. The area is also home to one of the largest buffalo populations in the Okavango Delta, which, in the dry season, can culminate into a herd of over 2000 animals.
Game drives in custom built open 4 X 4 vehicles are conducted early morning and late afternoon or as otherwise requested. The accompanying professional guides are among the best in Botswana. As Stanley’s Camp is situated on a private concession, night drives are also offered and are usually combined with the afternoon activity. Walking Safaris enable guests to explore the delta on foot while mokoro (dug–out canoe) water safaris let you experience nature up close and at the gentle pace (offered most of the year, subject to water levels).
The elephant interaction – A unique and educational experience with a group of semi-habituated African elephants is available at Stanley’s Camp. Spend half a day with the elephants to observe and interact with them in their natural environment. (Additional cost)
