Stanley’s Camp has a long association with the Living with Elephants Foundation, so seeing grown and juvenile ellies strolling past, a few feet from the veranda of your raised suite is virtually an everyday occurrence. Not that the surreal-ness of the scene ever wears off!
The world’s favourite pachyderms aren’t the only reason to put Sanctuary Stanley’s Camp on the itinerary of your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Botswana, though. The Okavango Delta changes with the passing months, from dry savannah to verdant wetlands, so you’re treated to an impressive and ever-changing parade of wildlife. Which means that game drives, walking safaris and night excursions always reveal something new and exciting.
It is said that an elephant never forgets. Stanley’s Camp offers you an experience you’ll remember forever.
