Sanctuary Stanley's is a classic tented camp with just eight tents built under an imposing African Ebony tree on a private concession overlooking the Okavango floodplains. Sanctuary Stanley's Camp is built on a 260,000 acre private concession in the renowned Okavango Delta. This traditional safari camp has a large lounge area and dining area with incredible views over the floodplains in front of camp. The main area features a bar from where refreshing drinks are always served with a smile, a small library area and curio shop. From the swimming pool - a real treat after a hot day of game viewing - guests can watch giraffe and other plains game march across the savannah and sometimes catch a glimpse of rare wild dogs. Everything about Sanctuary Stanley's Camp is built to the highest ecological standards so that we don't damage this highly sensitive area.The intimate camp features only eight safari canvas tents, each individually designed, furnished with African antiques that exude a classic and understated elegance that harks back to the explorers and colonialists of the 19th century. Each tent has a large wooden deck providing private areas where you can relax in a hammock while soaking in the surrounding sights and sounds or enjoy cocktails, before dinner is served in the spectacular dining mess.

Stanley's provided our very first African tented safari camp experience. And we couldn't have imagined that anything could possibly exceed it. But by the end of our 9-day, 3-camp tour, it was clear to us that glowing accolades come easily to any number of Botswana's...More

Hello, I don't remember, I think around $250 US. It was well worth it and the money goes to support the 3 elephants. Their care is not cheap! You can follow them on Facebook at Living with Elephants Foundation. It was a very informative and interactive experience. Having lunch with them after was a surreal experience.
Have a great time.

Hi Lori - November is the ‘Green Season’ is when the air is fresh and there are rains - everything comes back to life again after enduring the long hot summer. Our local Operations Director says “This is my favourite time of the year. After the arid summers I look forward to cool temperatures and everything turns green”. Usually the skies are bright and sunny in the mornings and sometimes cloud rolls in during the afternoons and there can be thunderstorms.
However, remember the weather in Africa is unpredictable these days so we can never be sure!
Hope that helps, Sanctuary Retreats
