Sanctuary Stanleys Camp Background2

With abundant wildlife roaming the area and several active hyena dens close to the camp, game viewing at Sanctuary Stanley's Camp allows for an exclusive experience.

The Delta has an extraordinary concentration of wildlife, boasting vast congregations of elephant and buffalo, sightings of big cat predators, and even the endangered wild dog. Water crossings are part of the adventure and watching zebra standing belly-deep grazing is quite a sight to see. Venture out after dark on night game drives to catch a glimpse of the nocturnal animals like the bush baby, hyena and leopard.


Elephant Cropped

Various different elephants have been coming into the camp quite often in recent months and spending time near the rooms, thrilling guests as they gently roam through the camp, munching on branches very close to the protected viewing decks in each private room.

Wild Dog Cropped

The nearby hyena den has three new inquisitive young ones running around which have been spotted by guests. Guests were incredibly lucky to spot a wild dog on the walkway to the guest rooms. The mother leopard and her cub seem to be doing well as our guides regularly see them.

Lion In Tree Cropped

Lions, zebras, giraffes, ostriches, baboons, rhinos, buffalos, hippos, llephant herds with lots of babies, impalas, warthogs and many different birds have been seen recently in the game reserve. This has been a particularly brilliant time to spot tree climbing lions.

Stanleys Hyena Cropped

The most commonly-spotted animals have been the cheeky hyenas who have been harassing the other predators, trying to steal their kills. It has been a very exciting time in the Delta.

Sightings April 2014 Cropped
