Rooms:  The camp underwent an extensive rebuild in 2018 and 10 brand new tents make up the guest accommodation. They are light, airy and comfortable. Mozzie nets adorn the beds and there are curtains which can be drawn at night if you wish. The ensuite bathroom has modern ameneties, running water. Each tent has a private deck.

Activities:  You’ll be have a broad choice of activities including game drives, mokoro rides and walking safaris, all excellent ways to experience the bush and its wildlife. A special activity you should try while at Stanley’s (for an extra fee) is the elephant interaction. Meet Jabu and Morula, the 2 orphaned elephants, and accompany them as they go for their morning walk, followed by a picnic lunch in their company. Scenic helicopter flights are available for an additional charge.  

Facilities:  There is a central lounge, bar and dining area on a raised deck with views over the floodplain. There is also a library and a gift shop. The camp fire is located in front of the main area and is the setting for pre- and post-dinner drinks and chats. The camp has an outdoor swimming pool. A laundry service is offered

Dining:  Most meals are eaten together as a group. Breakfast can be a light continental meal or a hearty cooked affair, lunch can be eaten while cooling your feet in the river, while dinner is a 3-course meal, and special private meals can be arranged on request. Game drives include drinks and snacks.  

Children:  Children of all ages are welcome. The minimum age for elephant interaction is 9 years.  

Health:  This is a malarial area.

Communication:  There is no mobile or internet access. The camp uses CB radio for communication.

Client Rating for Botswana 5/5 from 120 reviews

Like staying in a 5 star hotel in a remote beautiful location. Some lovely personal touches like a refillable water bottle with your name on, a table laid with glasses, fizzy wine and snacks waiting in a clearing when we got off the plane, electric blankets on the beds, woken up with a hot drink in the mornings.Lovely food with a good choice, friendly staff and impressive tracking from the guide.
