Barclay Stenner operates exclusive luxury private canvas safaris to suit your expectations and preferred style of safari. Our mobile safaris are reminiscent of the overland expeditions undertaken by early explorers, blended with the touch of modern luxury and exquisite service. 

We are a company born of English traditions and comforts, blended with African experience. 

Our main operation is based in Botswana. Further afield, we are an agency that creates fantastic privately guided African holiday itineraries across the continent offering a range of amazing wilderness adventure trips in thriving areas with our preferred operators in their respective countries.

Luxury Private Canvas Safaris

Luxury Private Canvas Safari - this is a privately guided 100% tailor made exclusive safari. Your own private camp, guide, host, chef and camp team. This is a great way to experience the bush with your family or close friends where you can dictate the pace of the safari. Should you choose to sit with the pride of lions we have found in the morning all day, that's up to you and your family. 

Our mission is to engage our clients in the magic and traditions of being on safari; the adventures, the wildlife, story telling around a fire and lying deep in the shade of private canvas observing animals in their natural environment.

We aim to provide a unique African wilderness experience with a blend of luxurious comfort. Stay in custom designed Meru tents furnished with flushing loos, bucket showers, Egyptian Cotton sheets, four poster beds and the most beautiful shaving mirrors in the bush. 

Our state of the art camp and game viewers are equipped with fully stocked fridges, a library and the latest in eco friendly solar power systems. We follow the game and moving camp without you even noticing is our signature.
