Sanctuary Baines Camp

The central areas at Baines are stunning and with only 4 rooms the lodge is one of the most exclusive throughout the whole of Botswana. The food and service is top class. Couple all this with the fact that the elephant interaction on offer, with ‘Elephant Guardian’ Douglas Alan Groves, being one of the most unique experiences on offer and you have the making of a top safari lodge. However…the resident game in the area is poor in comparison to elsewhere and neighboring Stanleys is quite a bit cheaper. So, for this reserve we actually prefer Stanleys and believe that a 2 night stay is sufficient. Overall, good but not quite good enough
Wooden decks have expansive views of both the river and the lagoon and both teem with life. The roomy suites feature four-poster beds and softly draped fabric, recalling a long-forgotten, more romantic era. The beds are mobile and offer guests the novel option of sleeping contently under the stars. And custom hammocks will be the perfect lure for guests looking to while away those sunny African afternoons. The main guest area features a large deck for outdoor dining and a swimming pool with views of the lagoon.

Whether by land or water, guests can track an abundance of game. Evening and nighttime excursions target the Deltas many nocturnal players. The year-round surrounding waters provide a myriad of waterways and a world of floating safaris. Options include the gentle pace of a poled mokoro (dugout canoe) or a motorboat with shaded canopy. Activities also include bush walks with armed guides. Guest staying at Baines Camp may also participate in the elephant interaction on offer at nearby Stanleys Camp.
