A lovely camp on the banks of the Mighty Zambezi that offers a true Africa experience. This camp works for first time visitors to Africa who are slightly nervous about a bush lodge / tented camp. You can experience a wide range of activities, from tiger fishing to walking safaris, everything available on your door step.

Enjoy spectacular views of the Zambezi River from the Selous Bar, lounge, dining area and 11m swimming pool.

Gather around the outdoor boma-style fireplace every evening and swop safari stories from the day's game viewing. On colder evenings, seek comfort beside the fireplaces in the bar as well as the lounge area. You might want to take a book from the library in The Boardroom, also offering a quiet place to check your emails.

Relax with a massage or beauty treatment in your suite or out on the veranda.


Meals at Baines River Camp are at your own convenience and served according to your schedule and preference. You don't even have to eat in camp: delicious breakfast or lunch picnics may be packed for you to enjoy out on your game drive or boat cruise.

Evening dining is a relaxed affair, enjoyed with either fellow guests on the outside dining area, under the African night sky or as a private dinner on your veranda. Choose your starter, main and dessert over a pre-dinner drink, presented by the talented chefs Crispin and Titus. If you fancy something entirely different, discuss your preferences with the staff.
