Baines Camp - Okavango

Exclusivity at Baines Camp in the heart of Botswana's magnificent Okavango Delta, a rich green watery region teeming with wildlife.

Set amongst the shady trees and water of the Okavango Delta, the small and intimate Baines' Camp features five luxurious suites set on elevated platforms in the tree line.

With just five lodges and a maximum of 10 people, Baines is fantastic for those who want to escape the tourist hordes.

The only way to get to Baines camp is by air

The 4WD takes another hour from the airfield to reach the isolated and intimate Baines Camp.

The drive reveals herds of antelope, buffalo, hartebeest, zebra and giraffe

The staff greets guests with an African song and plenty of smiles of welcome.

E and O.E

The en suite thatched lodge walls are built from recycled drinks cans and elephant dung

Inside, however, it is tiled, whitewashed and elegantly furnished in dark African wood, with embroidered hangings and animal-skin rugs on the floor.

The four-poster beds are draped with mosquito nets and can be wheeled on to the veranda for a night under a twinkling blanket of incredible bright African stars, listening to the sounds of the bush

" The reeds rustled as an elephant glided his way slowly through, just 20 metres from our sleeping area"

"morning traffic" consists of a chorus of mating frogs - a cacophony of purrs, croaks, whirrs, whoops, hippos honking and elephants flapping their ears.

The five lodges are connected by a raised wooden walkway
to the main area

The main area 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

no photograph can convey the scent of sage brush in the early morning,the sound of vultures on a dead elephant, or the incredible brightness of the African stars

This area, situated on a private concession neighbouring the Moremi, is superb 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 of the 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', with skilled, armed guides introducing the area's natural wonders.

The choice of activities will not end there. The unique and educational elephant interaction is available to guests at Baines'.
