Baines' Camp

Okavango Delta, Botswana

Baines' Camp

Baines' Camp is a small, intimate retreat, located on a private concession deep within the Okavango Delta, close to Moremi Game Reserve. With only five luxury suites, Baines' is one of the Okavango's most exclusive camps.

Baines' Camp is a small, intimate retreat located deep within the Okavango Delta. Situated on the edge of the Boro River, in a private concession close to Moremi Game Reserve, Baines' Camp is one of our favourite properties in the Okavango thanks to its superb location and very exclusive character.

Baines' Camp was built in 2005 as the sister property to another camp named after a famous explorer, Stanley's Camp, with which it shares the 100,000 hectare NG32 Concession. Smaller than its sister camp, Baines' has only five elevated rooms, meaning it never accommodates more than ten guests at a time. The public areas are simple but beautifully presented - a large deck, where meals are usually served, overlooks the lagoon, while the swimming pool and sala provide a space to relax between game drives.

Game-viewing at Baines' Camp is generally superb. Its location in a private concession allows for a wider variety of safari activities than at many other camps, including night drives and guided walking safaris (limited to certain times of year). Also on offer, and unique to Baines' Camp (and Stanley's), is the wonderful elephant experience, an opportunity to spend time with three semi-habituated elephants.

Baines' Camp is open throughout the year.


Baines' Camp offers five beautifully-decorated suites, all raised from the ground and offering sweeping views of the lagoon. In a unique touch, the beds are mobile, allowing you to move them onto your private outdoor deck and sleep under the stars.


Multi-course meals are served out on the decks and accompanied by a selection of African and European wines.

Child Policy

Children under the age of 12 cannot be accommodated at Baines' Camp. Sister camp Stanley's has a more lenient child policy, accepting children above the age of 9. Due to the remote nature of these camps and their small size, they simply wouldn't be suitable for families travelling with very young children.
