Baines Camp is situated on the Boro River, set amongst the shady trees and water of the Okavango Delta, in a private concession adjoining the Moremi Game Reserve. The actual camp, named after the prominent nineteenth century explorer Sir Thomas Baines, the camp is small and intimate, with only 5 magnificent suites views over the permanent water of the river and a lagoon teaming with life.

Baines Camp and Living With Elephants (pure and utter luxury in the Okavango) invite you to ultimately discover Africa along with us from an elephant's viewpoint, walking within the enormous and muted footsteps of nature's great masterwork.

Rooms & Suites:

Baines Camp is placed between the shady trees and water belonging to the Okavango Delta, the seductive Baines' Camp offers 5 lavish suites set in place on raised platforms inside the tree line. Timber veranda's offer you extensive views across the permanent water belonging to the Boro River as well as a lagoon teeming with wildlife. The raised suites include a fantastic bedroom, with delicately draped fabrics adding the enchanting feel of a bygone time. The four-poster beds are completely mobile, offering guests the option of sleeping beneath star laden skies. Enthusiastic astronomers will take pleasure in stargazing from the solitude of their very own veranda.

There is a swimming pool with two thatched salas on either side. Electricity, 220 volts, is supplied by a combination of silent packed generator and battery system allowing 24-hour power supply.
