Baines' Camp

Baines' Camp

Okavango Delta

Baines' Camp Location Map

Set amongst the shady trees and water of the Okavango Delta, the intimate Sanctuary Baines' Camp is named after the famed 19th century explorer and artist, Thomas Baines. This area, situated on a vast private concession neighbouring the Moremi Game Reserve, is superb for viewing all animal and bird species.

Guests here have the opportunity to see animals up close with your expert guide on morning and evening game drives in open 4x4 vehicles. A night game drive is the perfect way to see some of the nocturnal animals not active during the day time.

One of the best ways to see the wildlife around Sanctuary Baines' Camp is in one of the locally made dugout canoes, known as mokoros. These used to be carved from ebony but are now made from commercially grown wood and fibreglass to protect the fragile environment of the Okavango. In one of these traditional crafts it is possible to float around the waterways and lagoons that make up the Delta, looking for crocodiles in the water, but also getting a remarkable view of the plains game from a new and exciting angle. For the less intrepid, the camp also has motorised speedboats that can be used when the rivers are in flood. All water based activities are seasonal and based on the water levels of the Delta.

Walking safaris are a speciality at Baines', with skilled guides introducing the area's natural wonders. Find out how to track and follow even the most elusive of animals in the Okavango.

The camp features just 6 suites with en-suite facilities and 4 poster beds, set on elevated platforms in the tree line with private wooden decks that offer expansive views over the shimmering permanent water of the Boro River where hippo can often be spotted. Traditional safari ceiling fans create a cooling breeze at even the hottest times of the year. Should you wish, your bed can be wheeled out onto your deck for a night under the stars, or take an indulgent soak in an opulent star bath. At Baines' Camp, the sky's the limit.

The swimming pool and the wide wooden deck that surrounds the main dining and sitting room is the ideal place to relax while observing the varied wildlife present here.
