Bainesâ?? Camp is located on the Boro River, set amongst the shady trees and water of the Okavango Delta, on the private Stanley’s concession neighbouring the Moremi Game Reserve.
Baines Camp, named after the famous 19th century explorer Sir Thomas Baines, is set in the tree line with wooden decks that offer expansive views over the permanent water of the river and a lagoon. This low environmental impact camp has been built using commercially grown wood and recycled tin cans.
The five tented suites are opulent and luxurious, with adjoining outdoor bathrooms and four-poster beds swathed in mosquito netting. The fourposter beds are fully mobile and can easily be wheeled out onto the private wooden deck if guests want to enjoy a night under the stars overlooking the shining waters of the Boro River.
Each room is equipped with a hairdryer, ceiling fan, in-room safe and minibar. Traditional safari ceiling fans create a cooling breeze at the hottest times of the year.
There is a communal 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. From here it is not unusal to see lions at the edge of the lagoon that the camp overlooks, whilst the many elephants who live in the area are regular visitors.
Actitives from the camp include day and night game drives, walking safaris, mokoro and motorised boat excursions (June to September).
An additional activity at Baines’ camp is the opportunity to go walking in the bush with three semi-habituated elephants. Jabu, Thembi and Morula are elephants that were orphaned nearby and adopted. The elephants ‘take’ guests on long walks, foraging in the area in absolute safety. This activity includes a leisurely paced walk, observing and interacting with the elephants, and a picnic lunch in their company.
