The Okavango Delta is the world’s largest inland delta and a miracle of nature. This paradisiacal oasis of islands and waterways flowers in the middle of the arid Kalahari Desert. Most visitors to Botswana rate the Okavango Delta as the highlight of their trip and it is not hard to see why – in terms of pristine beauty, remote location, and rich diversity of animal and bird life, the Okavango Delta is unbeatable.
Overlooking the Boro River and surrounded by ebony and sausage trees, Sanctuary Stanley’s Camp is a beautiful tented safari camp that offers its guests the amazing opportunity to experience the magnificent variety of large mammals and the pristine surroundings of the Okavango.
