Sanctuary Baines’ Camp is our smallest camp with only six luxurious suites. With star baths and sky beds on your private deck, this is a romantic oasis. Set in a grove of trees, and surrounded by papyrus beds, Sanctuary Baines’ Camp is built on raised platforms high above the Boro River in a private concession bordering the Moremi Game Reserve. We encouraged the local community in Maun to collect cans, with a fee paid for every can, which were recycled to form the backbone of the camp’s structures. Baines’ is also one of only two camps to offer you the opportunity to walk with elephants. The six suites at Sanctuary Baines' are opulent and luxurious, with ensuite facilities and four-poster beds. Should you wish, your bed can be wheeled out onto the private wooden deck for a night under the stars, overlooking the shimmering waters of the Boro River where hippo can often be spotted. Or take an indulgent soak under the stars on your own private viewing deck in an opulent star bath.

This is such a great location, with great staff. We enjoyed the view, the elephants in the water and the night visit of a Hyppo. What else do,you want? The bath under the stars or the great food? Drinks by the fire or the night safari with lions?

We were enormously impressed by every aspect of the Sanctuary Baines Camp. The designis awesome and looks directly over a lovely lagoon of Hippos, not always at ease with each other. The suite was well designed and kept very clean. But most of all the staff were brilliant; they
