Foxes Safari Camps
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.
Stanley’s Kopje enjoys the advantage of being the only elevated land in an otherwise flat open plain. A nearby waterhole encourages game within sight of the Camp and the whole Mwanamboga area is generally perceived to be the better game viewing area in the park. The Camp is named after the explorer Morten Stanley, who led an expedition through Mikumi National Park and right past the location of the Camp.
The 12 spacious and airy Meru-style tents generously spaced around the kopje, are each themed around the history of an Explorer or Slave Trader. The tents are pitched on high wooden platforms with traditionally built thatched roofs which provide shade from the sun while you sit on your veranda and enjoy the game around the camp.
Each luxurious tent has it’s own bathroom with solar heated running water for showering. In front, there are large verandas with chairs and table from which to fully appreciate the views with a coffee first thing in the morning.
WHY CHOOSE STANLEY’S KOPJE?
- The little-known Mikumi National Park is well stocked with big game and a wide variety of birds, all set in beautiful golden grasslands, against a backdrop of Uluguru Mountains and Mikumi Hills.
- Guiding is not just about the big animals and birds. Guiding covers all aspects of the Park, its insects, spore, footprints, plants and anecdotal stories.
- The Tanzanian landscape includes several small isolated mountain ranges. Each of these has a unique mixture of habitats and animal species and none more so than the Udzungwa Mountains National Park.
- At Mikumi we like to be able to add those special touches that add the magic to your safari; from bush breakfasts to sundowners and picnic lunches in the bush. What better way to watch the sun go down than with a cool drink, overlooking the grunting hippos in a waterhole.
