Visitors accompany their herd of rescued African elephants on daily foraging treks. Immersed in Elephant life, warm bonds of kinship grow from a newly found appreciation of this other creative intelligence. The aim is to highlight the individual personalities of our elephants, Jabu and Morula and to initiate relationships between elephants and guests. This is an intimate and highly educational bush walk where you will learn about conservation of the African Elephant and their ecosystem. This rare experience will be cherished and certainly never forgotten. Please note the elephants are on annual leave from 15 January to 15 February each year.
Game viewing in the area is extremely good with excellent numbers of predators and plains-game on offer. The area houses one of the largest Buffalo populations in the Okavango Delta, which, in the dry season, can concentrate into a herd in excess of 2000 head. Game-drives are conducted in open vehicles, which offer unencumbered views / photography. The vehicles have been custom built and offer individual seating.
Game drives are conducted in the early morning and late afternoon. Sanctuary Stanley's Camp is set in a private concession which means you can also venture out at night on exciting game drives to see the nocturnal wildlife. The accompanying, Stanley's Camp, professional guides are among the best in Botswana.
Exploring the Okavango on foot is offered at Sanctuary Stanley's Camp throughout the year, accompanied by armed trackers.
Mokoro (dugout canoe) activities are offered when the Okavango Delta is flooded during most of the year - water levels permitting. Sit back and relax as you glide through lily ponds on local dugout canoes, spying crocodiles and hippos en-route.
