Baines Camp



Floating above the roaring waters of the Boro River, within an exclusive parcel of land neighbouring the Moremi Game Reserve, Baines Camp is the intimate, romantic child of the Sanctuary lodgings.


Framed in a copse of indigenous trees and filled with scatterings of papyrus and reed, Baines Camp offers a level of eco-committed amenities and services that are unique and heart-warming. The intention in every room and suite is to reduce impact on the land. Only commercially grown wood was used in its inception, whilst the walls are insulated with tin cans, collected by locals in the nearby town of Maun, creating an income for these people.

Below the camp the perennial flow of the Boro River can be spotted beneath the timber pathways that weave amongst the tree tops, linking guests to the communal rooms of the camp, as well as the decadent rooms. The main dining area and sitting room are fringed by the crystalline swimming pool and amply-sized deck for intimate views of the wildlife in the trees and on the ground. Watch the hippos as they soak in the mudded banks of the lagoon, or the elephants trumpeting through fields of palm.


The place where travellers meet the scattered lines of cloud in the shades of sunset sky, Baines Camp offers guests only 5 cherished suites. These quarters hold four-post star beds, draped in netting through which you become privy to the constellations, if you choose to wheel it out onto the private deck. En-suite bathroom, ceiling fans and wide open space keep the suites cool during the hotter months. Outdoor star bath, lit with a myriad of glowing lanterns, take indulgence to a new place that will forever stay with you.

Activities & Wildlife

One of the only places where it’s possible to go walking with the elephants, Baines Camp will lead guests safely beside these mesmerising creatures. Ambling beside these intelligent giants is a humbling experience, spiritual in nature, where the lines of division between man and mammal begin to evaporate.

The Living With Elephants Foundation’s vision is to maintain a place for elephants in this land. Doug and Sandi Groves, along with their passionate team, ensure that these gentle behemoths of our time live to the full extent of their 70 years. Guests will be taken on an insider’s tour of the foundation’s work, if they so choose.
