On the southern tip of Chief’s Island

Classic elegance for contemporary travellers at this re-imagined tented safari camp

Set in an amphitheatre of ebony and sausage trees on the southern tip of Chief’s Island, Stanley’s Camp borders the southern section of the Moremi Game Reserve. This private concession is located by definition in seasonal delta. In April 2018, Stanley’s Camp was reborn with ten brand new luxury canvas tents. Here on this 260,000-acre private concession in the renowned Okavango Delta, the re-imagined tented safari camp has been crafted with sustainability in mind and offers classic elegance for contemporary travellers, as well as extended game viewing from the new sun-downer bar.

Distinguished accommodation has been crafted with sustainability in mind to evoke the days of explorer Henry Stanley, whom the camp is named after. The ten classic-style tents have been significantly enlarged, with five-star fixtures. Each tent has a deck with views over the dramatic floodplains, allowing prime game viewing from your bedroom with a freshly made cup of tea or coffee to hand. The in-room experience has also been enhanced with the addition of a compact gym, yoga bag a well-stocked minibar and coffee station. The easy, breezy central tent will be where to relax on summer evenings. Here, the new Explorer Lounge is modelled on the much-loved orientation room at Sanctuary Chief’s Camp, inviting guests to discover more about the Delta ahead of their explorations. There’s also a sociable new outdoor bar with the best possible views over the floodplains ensuring every moment of each stay has that incredible wilderness in wide screen.

As well as game drives and walking safaris, during flood season it is possible to plan mokoro boating rides and educational elephant interaction trips. Shared only with Sanctuary Baines’ Camp, this vast patch of the river delta in northern Botswana is so private that only Sanctuary Retreats’ vehicles tour these precious, pristine grassy plains. This ensures a more exclusive safari experience and allows a deeper connection for all with the wild and promising show-stopping sightings of the Big Four. Sanctuary Stanley’s Camp is also considered one of the best places in the world to view buffalo in large numbers.
