Baines' Camp is a luxurious and intimate safari lodge on the southern edge of Botswana's Okavango Delta. Set in a private concession for sheer exclusivity, the camp sits under shady trees overlooking a large, perennial lagoon just off the Boro River. Guests at Baines' Camp are at the heart of the legendary Okavango Delta wildlife experience and will enjoy a variety of classic game viewing activities: morning, afternoon and early evening spotlit game drives are offered, as are canoe trips, walking safaris (depending on the height of the grass), optional helicopter flips and motorboat excursions.

Small and intimate, Baines' Camp features just six luxurious suites, each set on an elevated platform. The suites are designed for comfort, and have ceiling fans and spacious en suite bathrooms.
Each also has its own private wooden deck, allowing you to enjoy the views in privacy, while the spacious bedrooms have a romantic feel with softly draped fabrics and luxurious 4-poster beds that are fully mobile so you can choose to sleep under the African stars - simply ask the staff to wheel them outside for you!
You are given an eco-friendly metal water bottle as a memento and for you to refill during your stay. Also for guests' use during their stay is a special 'safari bag' that includes binoculars, birding and frogging guide books, and a specimen tick list.
Grab a refreshing drink from the bar and head to the main viewing deck that overlooks the lagoon, complete with two salas. This part of the Okavango Delta is superb for game viewing and bird watching, which you can even do while you relax in the swimming pool or sip a drink on the deck.
But of course you will explore the area further on guided walking safaris or on morning and afternoon 4X4 game drives - and the fact that Baines' Camp is located in a private concession means that you can enjoy thrilling night drives as well.
Baines' Camp also offers a range of water-based safaris. Excursions by mokoro (dug-out canoes) will give you the opportunity to discover the details of the teeming Okavango Delta environment close up, while motorboat trips will offer you a more exhilarating experience.
The main area of Baines' Camp features a large open-air deck for a truly African outdoor dining experience. Enjoy gourmet cuisine, complemented by vintage wines while looking out over the lagoon.
Afternoon tea and pre-dinner snacks have been replaced with a scrumptious all-day snack menu, offering guests a unique range of delicious delights.

Sanctuary Baines' Camp
A superb lodge with lovely staff and a great guide in Fred. Only having 5 rooms meant it was almost like a private booking. Great game drives, great location and great food. In fact the food sheer volume of food was possibly the only thing one could
"The differences between the three camps and the countryside around them made it all very interesting. The guides were incredibly knowledgeable and brilliant at finding the wildlife. All in all, a wonderful trip."
"Baines Camp is very good, with great activities for the guests like the elephant walk safari, having dinner in the bush, the boat trip and the "star bed". The service was excellent and also the food."
Our last stop was Baine's Sanctuary. The setting is beautiful and again the tents and food all very good. The highlight here was of course the elephant experience! So, yes the elephant experience was fantastic! We thoroughly enjoyed meeting and c
We enjoyed our trip to the Delta very much. I seem to always have my "travel agent" hat on when we travel because I'm always comparing and contrasting different camps, countries, etc! It seemed as though most of the guests were only staying at Wilde
Baines' Camp topped it off nicely - what a way to end the trip. Each lodge and accomodation had different ways of making the stay enjoyable but Baines was beyond belief - taking the bed out onto the deck so that we could sleep under the stars and the

Very nice camp and accommodation, good wildlife and nice staff. We spent two out of the three nights with our bed out on the deck and it was a wonderful experience. It is to be noted that the unusually high amount of water in the delta made all trans

"It was outstanding on all counts and you can recommend it to your new clients.The people, the animals and the nature can not be better."
"Nice facilities but just not as good as LV (Little Vumbura ). So glad we got to see the both of them."
