6/10 Good

Stanley Island is rely an Island, you can go there only by boat , it makes it uncomfortable if you plan to sleep more than one night and have plans in the area. You need to be organize and bring with you enough food. If you plan to come with a family, with kids and to stay for a day or to is very nice' you have a realy nice area and is big and specious. the pepole are nice, and frendly. there are some zebras that we met in the morning, is like sleeping in a natural reserve.

10/10 Exceptional

One of the best places to stay in South Africa! We really enjoyed the zebras in the morning which graze freely as the island is a nature reserve. Probably the only downside is that you have to call the boatdriver to bring you to the island or car but it's a free boatrrip:)
