We were here in early September 2012 and really enjoyed it. The terrain was totally different then Kenya because of the Delta. The rooms were part building and part tent. You can roll your bed out onto the deck if you want to sleep outside. We chose not to do that which was a good thing because one morning an elephant decided to eat a tree right outside our tent window. It was so exciting to hear the leaves rustling at 5:50 one morning and look out the window and see the elephant 6 feet away. Some people did sleep on their deck though.
There are only 5 rooms, the food was good and the staff very nice. I would definitely recommend Baines.

There are only five suites in this romantic oasis. Each suite has a four-poster 'sky bed', swathed in mosquito netting, which can be wheeled out onto the private wooden deck for a romantic night under the stars. ... more less
