Things To Do
The game viewing around camp is thrilling. Water crossings are part of the adventure and watching zebra standing belly-deep grazing is a sight to see! Because Sanctuary Stanley’s Camp is set in a private concession, there is the opportunity to venture out after dark on night game drives to see the nocturnal animals. Key wildlife include: lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo, cheetah, giraffe, impala, zebra, wild dog, hyena, and hippo.
The following activities are included in your stay:
Enjoy game drives, spotting wildlife from open-sided 4X4 vehicles, accompanied by professional guides. Because the camp is located on a private concession, guests have the opportunity to see animals up close on both morning and evening game drives to discover incredible nocturnal species.
The Okavango Delta is flooded for much of the year and when it is, guests can experience the gentle pace of a poled mokoro excursion along the narrow Delta channels. Sit back and relax as you glide through lily ponds on local dugout canoes while watching the surrounding wildlife. (Subject to water levels). Generally mokoros are available January to October but can’t be guaranteed.
Discover the signs of the bush, accompanied by your guide and armed ranger on exciting walking safaris. The wildlife is spectacular all year round and because the camp is set in a private concession guests can get very close in perfect safety with one of the guides.
Scenic Helicopter Flights
Experience the magnificent Okavango Delta by air with Helicopter Horizons Scenic Flights - a completely personalized experience offering the very best of the untamed wilderness and wildlife in widescreen. These scenic flights involve flying west towards the permanent delta, exposing areas which are unreachable by vehicle or boat and showcasing the sheer enormity of the Okavango Delta. Helicopters are a perfect way to explore deep into the Delta exposing permanent waterways, palm islands, and lagoons, with sweeping views of floodplains and incredible game sightings. Doors are removed for unrestricted views which offers great photographic opportunities. The best time to experience these scenic flights is early morning and late afternoon as these times usually provide the best light for photography. This activity is at an additional cost and can be booked while in camp.
