Stanley's Kopje Highlights

Previously known as Foxes Safari Camp, this lodge was completely rebuilt in 2011 and now takes full advantage of its commanding position on a hill overlooking the Mkata flood plain and the Mwanamboga waterhole. Stanley’s Kopje Camp is the sister lodge of Vuma Hills Camp, both located in the Mikumi National Park and within driving distance from one another. This camp is seasonal, only open from June through February, and is the only small, personalised camp in Mikumi. Although dwarfed by the famous Selous, the abundant wildlife of the Mkata Floodplain is often compared to the Serengeti and the park boasts 400 local bird species, including a variety of European migrants during the rainy season.

Stanley's Kopje Game Viewing and Activities

Mikumi National Park is a prime game viewing area. The Mkata plain supports vast herds of plains game, and guests can expect to see lion, zebra, hippo, huge numbers of antelope; including the elusive eland, greater kudu, and roan and sable in the surrounding less fertile hills. Although game sightings can never be guaranteed, there are lots of sightings of the African wild dog hunting the plains in packs. Retire to your private terrace with your binoculars and the camp’s own birding checklist - there are over 400 local species to be seen. Expect to see kingfishers, hornbills, sunbirds, egrets, plovers and fish eagles. All game drives around the park are in open 4 wheel drive vehicles. They are led by trained experienced English speaking guides. If a break from the bush is required, guests can take a dip in the pool that has outstanding views over the floodplain.
