Stanley’s Kopje perches high on a rocky kopje, enjoying fine 360 degree views over the surrounding Mikumi wilderness, whilst the 12 tents are spaced around the lower perimeter of the hill, with stunning views across the plains. It enjoys the advantage of being the only elevated land area in an otherwise flat open plain. A nearby waterhole encourages game to drink within sight of camp. The Camp is named after the explorer Morten Stanley, who led an expedition through Mikumi National Park right past the location of the camp. The 12 spacious and airy Meru-style tents are generously spaced around the kopje, each historically themed around the story of an early Explorer. The tents are pitched on high wooden platforms with traditional thatch grass roofing which provide shade from the sun while you sit on your veranda and enjoy the game in and around the camp. Each luxurious tent has it's own bathroom with solar heated running water for showering. Built in typical Swahili style with a steeply pitched roof, the dining banda surrounds a central bar, with sitting and dining areas facing north, south, east and west! A little below this building is a shaded sitting area next to the swimming pool whilst continuing with game viewing from the pool's edge - no missed opportunities.
