the Heart of the Okavango Delta
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. Wooden decks offer expansive views over the permanent water of
the Boro River and a lagoon teeming with life. The elevated suites feature a
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.
This exclusive camp is named after the famed nineteenth century explorer and
artist, Thomas Baines. 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.
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
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
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'.
