Stanleys Kopje Pool

Stanley's Kopje

Enjoy relaxed luxury on the only elevated land in this flat open plain

In the Mikumi National Park

Stanley’s Kopje presides over the best game viewing area of the park, the Mwanamboga waterhole

Stanley’s Kopje is named after the explorer Morten Stanley, who led an expedition through Mikumi National Park and right past the location of the camp. The main banda in the camp offers 360 degree panoramic views of the surround plains and houses a bar, dinning and lounge area. On the lower platform is the pool, which continues to provide an ideal game viewing location.

There are 12 spacious Meru-style tents throughout the camp, pitched high on wooden platforms with thatched roofs, to provide shade and keep the tents cool. Offering an un-pretentious level of luxury, each tent is beautifully themed around the history of an explorer or slave trader and has its own bathroom with solar heated shower.

Stanleys Kopje offers game drives with experienced, English speaking guides in comfortable 4 wheel drive vehicles. Guiding walks are also available, which focus on the smaller, equally as fascinating, details of the park including footprints, insects and plants.
