Santuary Stanley’s Camp has reopened, now featuring 10 new light, airy and luxurious canvas tents within a 260 000-acre private concession in Botswana’s Okavango Delta.
Sanctuary Retreats says the accommodation has been crafted with sustainability in mind to evoke the days of the explorer, Henry Stanley.
The classic-style tents have been significantly enlarged and feature five-star fixtures. Each tent has a deck with views of the floodplains, allowing game viewing from your bedroom. The in-room experience has also been enhanced with the addition of a compact gym, yoga bag, a well-stocked minibar and coffee station.
In the central area – the new Explorer Lounge has been modelled on the orientation room at Sanctuary Chief’s Camp and guests can learn more about the Delta ahead of their explorations. There is also a new outdoor bar and a solar farm will generate 80% of the camp’s electricity.
