Sanctuary Stanley's Camp
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 14 September 2017

This camp was everything I could have hope for! The staff were wonderful, the food amazing and the game drives incredible! Ice, our guide was knowledgeable, funny, and made sure that we had the best day EVERYDAY! Martin was terrific, and the rest of the staff as well. Laundry was done free everyday, which was terrific! The tent was clean and very roomy. The bed was so comfortable. I would recommend this camp to everyone! We saw so many animals, lions, elephants, giraffe, zebra, baboon...and the list goes on. We had a terrific time!

The entire team made one of our life dreams to travel to the Okavangodelta to a completely, totally satisfying, fortunate delighted stay!
Adam the guide and we have been (and still are) so lucky magnets that we have seen a leopard less than 24 hours after arriving sitting in a tree, blue sky behind and then after a while jumping into the grass strolling away along the grassland. In fact we saw them all, even hyenas with puppies...and a alarm trompeting sitatunga....
We have definitely appreciated all the meals, the singing, dancing and playing the drums staff (!) , the hot water bottle in our bed and so on.... we enjoyed our stay very very much.
Thank you BB and Adam and to the team again and we definitely hope to see you very very soon.

This was our last lodge of our trip to Botswana. We stayed 3 nights here and loved every minute. The rooms were very comfortable with a small balcony to sit on overlooking the delta with the little extras such as port and glasses on the table to enjoy after dinner
After dark you are walked to your rooms and at night you can hear the sounds of Africa
The food and hospitality was wonderful sitting around the fire having a few drinks before dinner with fellow travellers each evening comparing notes great
The game drives were different than our previous ones with animals a little more sparse and a lot of water crossings but hey we we're in a delta. We were a group of 7 and just agreed how long we wanted to be out as we'd already seen such a lot of game it was actually nice to spend some down time at the lodge
All the meals were nice but the afternoon teas a real treat
There is a small well stocked gift shop and a nice pool area which we relaxed beside
We had a resident warthog living under the main balcony who was often seen out and on 2 nights hyenas lurking around the dining room which was great fun but soon chased away by staff,a troop of monkeys live in the trees around the lodge
I think this lodge was just perfect for us as our last one on our safari enough fellow traveller to mingle with, able to sort our game drives great food and delightful surroundings with happy staff

Stayed: June 2017

The arrival experience with singing personnel and champagne, the staff carries our bags to our wonderful tent style accommodation (on there heads), wow. Our room was extremely comfortable and opens to the beauty of the Delta offering the opportunity for the wildlife to walk to our deck. Our game drives were AMAZING filled with Buffalo, Giraffes, Hippos and a male Elephant actually made 2 charges at our jeep (best guide ever), a total adrenaline rush. All the personnel were instantly like family and so happy to help with anything. Meals and drinks were just right and plenty! #loveafrica #lovesanctuaryretreats #amazingguidesafrica

Each day we went on a exciting safari and returned to a beautiful resort with a warm and friendly staff, delicious food and comfortable accommodations! The highlights were walking with the elephants and driving through rivers!

Then same is one of the more traditional ones, small but pretty location.
The tents have come a bit of age and need some repairs and sprucing up, the food is ok and so is the service. Game runs very good end unusual sinc most in rivers
