We booked with go2africa, and as we both wanted to enjoy the safari exp. I wasnt willing to give up my 5 star amenities. Well, you do not have to do that at Stanley's Camp. We flew into the camp from maun, and was welcome by a wonderful and fantasic guide, who asked as we step off the plane if we wanted to go for a game drive or freshen up a bit. We opted for the evening game drive. Lucky for us a leopard with cubs, had just made a kill, we observed her tired and very full tummy from our open top jeep from just about 2 feet... After an amazing first few hours at the camp on a game drive, we then headed back to the main camp. We were welcomed by such friendly people. The tents are divine and attention to detail is very well done. We were here just after the rains and it was begining of winter, the weather was fantasic for the entire 5 days we were here. added extras like hot water bottles in your bed to warm it before turning in each night., or your requested wine for your evening drives and canapes.. we had a lion in camp roaring one night, a very neat exp to hear his roars vibrate through your body. (we also had the elephant block us from getting in our tent one night, the staff took care of it with out incident) The hyena's are forever roaming in and around the camp at night( can get loud at times). As my husband is a big fan of the hyena this was a huge highlight for him ... our guide even went as far as to track a pack, he hunted them down and took us in their den, the young pups were close to our jeep within arms reach..The game viewing will not disappoint... Each morning a fantasic breakfest is served. The afternoon lunches are great, but the dinners at night are amazing... we had fantasic evening drives and stopping in the open plains to enjoy a nice bottle of wine, a good cigar and the botswana sun set. If you want luxury and fantasic game viweing( which is based on the time of year) this is the place to go. It will not disappoint. The staff is fantasic.. Our guide whom is contracted by the camp, was most informative and was a fantastic tracker.. would highly recommend this place... and will go again..
