Thousands of elephant migrate through the area and here, at Stanleys Camp, guests can have an astonishing experience walking with elephants in the bush. Three orphaned elephants have been brought up in the area and have been used to being with humans since an early age. Every morning the elephants go for a walk around their home range, foraging for food and checking that all is well. They look for fresh fruit in the nearby trees and interact with guests. A few people each day are able to accompany them on their walk through the bush and see the wilds of Africa through the eyes of an elephant – a truly uplifting experience that makes a lasting impression on all who share their time with the elephants. This activity includes a leisurely paced walk with a trio of semi-habituated elephants, and a picnic lunch in their company….truly an experience not to be missed……
A classic tented camp located on a private concession in the Okavango Delta, Stanley’s Camp offers a varied game viewing experience as well as our unique elephant interaction. Set among ebony and sausage trees, Stanley’s Camp is located on a 260,000 acre private concession bordering the Moremi Game Reserve. The natural wonders of the area constantly change over the seasons from lush green when the rain flows down the Angolan highlands, to dry savannah when the neighbouring Kalahari Desert tightens its grip on the terrain. The camp is the home of our unique Living with Elephants interaction. Walking with a trio of orphaned elephants is an uplifting experience and one that will remain with you long after you’ve left.
Because Stanley’s is located on a private concession, walks and night drives are offered. Morning and afternoon/night drives are taken in open 4X4 vehicles and mokoro excursions will take you along the crystal clear channels.
Each of the eight safari canvas tents are individually designed, furnished with African antiques and exude a classic and understated elegance that harks back to the explorers and colonialists of the 19th century. Large wooden decks provide private areas where you can relax in hammocks. From the swimming pool, watch giraffe and other plains game march across the savannah. You might even catch a glimpse of rare wild dogs stalking the plains. Stanley’s Camp has a large sitting and dining area which provides incredible views over the floodplains in front of camp. Enjoy a pre-dinner drink around the firepit after a day’s game viewing and elephant interaction.
