Sanctuary Stanley’s Camp

‘Classic Camp; Elephant Interaction’

On a private concession in the Okavango Delta, Sanctuary Stanley’s Camp offers varied game viewing alongside a fantastic elephant experience. Discover the delta by game drive and walking safari, or hop on board a local dugout canoe and float through the winding waterways. The elephant experience will see you meander through the bush as they go about their day, before enjoying a picnic lunch in their company. Retire to a comfortable tent at the end of the day and admire magnificent views from your hammock.

In addition to game drives, the lodge also carries out cruise safaris on double-tiered boats where you can observe the game from 360 degree swivel seats. At the camp, children can enjoy their own guided walks and game drives, whilst parents can unwind in the swimming pool or with a soothing treatment at the Spa.
