The camp is small with just eight very spacious tents, each with proper beds, elegant furnishings, an en-suite WC and shower, and a balcony to the front. The main building is raised on decking providing expansive views over the surrounding floodplains and is set among ancient trees.
The camp is tented, but elegant, exuding the age of exploration that pays modern tribute to Africa's original safaris of the 19th century. Vintage maps and textiles accent plush furnishings in natural tones - all of which seamlessly complement the vast wilderness of the Delta situated just at the foot of camp.
One of the special features of Stanley’s Camp is its proximity to the nearby Living With Elephants project, run by the hugely experienced Doug Groves. For over 20 years, Doug and his team have raised and rehabilitated orphaned elephants so that they are now habituated to the presence of people and at an additional cost it is possible to spend around five hours with them.
Let Doug be your guide as Jabulani and Morula show off their distinct personalities, and you gain a privileged insight to the habits and lifestyle of these charismatic and fascinating creatures. You can touch and stroke them, watch them interact, feed and bathe in mud pools, listen to the sounds by which they communicate and take a walk with them through the bush as they move silently on their giant feet and occasionally tear branches off trees. Culminating with a sumptuous bush lunch accompanied by your new elephant friends, this is a unique and thrilling experience that is not to be missed for any visitor to Stanley’s.
