Baines' Camp is an exclusive, intimate safari camp set amongst the shady trees and water of Botswana's Okavango Delta. Baines' Camp is named after the famed nineteenth century explorer and artist, Thomas Baines.
The intimate Baines' Camp features five luxurious suites set on elevated platforms in the tree line. Wooden decks offer expansive views over the permanent water of the Boro River and a lagoon teeming with life. The elevated suites feature a luxurious bedroom, with softly draped fabrics adding the romantic touch of a bygone era. The four-poster beds are fully mobile, giving guests the choice of slumber under star laden skies. Avid astronomers will delight in stargazing from the privacy of their own deck.
The main area at Baines' Camp features an oversize deck for outdoor dining and views over the permanent water of the lagoon, as well as a swimming pool with two sala's for refreshing sunbathing.
Baines' Camp is situated on a private concession neighbouring the Moremi Game Reserve - a superb wildlife area for viewing all animal and bird species. Guests may explore by land and water, often into the night to discover nocturnal species.
The permanent water surrounding Baines' Camp will reveal a world of floating safaris, atmospherically silent at the gentle pace of a poled mokoro (dug-out-canoe) excursion, or faster in a comfortable shaded motorboat (subject to water levels).
A myriad of waterways, feathery beds of papyrus, and animal species, large and small, are waiting to be discovered.
Sometimes there is no better way to tune into the bush than on foot, and walking safaris is a speciality at Baines' Camp, with skilled, armed guides introducing the area's natural wonders.
