Baines' Camp was built in 2005 in a beautiful area of Botswana's Okavango Delta, neighbouring the Moremi Game Reserve and facing the Boro River, one of the Delta's main arteries. Named after the famed Victorian explorer and artist, Thomas Baines, the camp stands in a 1,050km² private concession (NG32) – and is notable for its innovative construction and roll-out 'star beds'.
Our view of Baines' Camp
Baines' chalets are large, airy and comfortable, and the option to roll the 'star bed' outside is great fun for at least one night here. The main area is small and comfortable and has internet access (convenient for some; intrusive for others). The camp's activities are varied and adapt well to the changing flood levels of the Delta. The game isn't always remarkable in this concession, but the biggest attraction is probably the optional extra elephant experience, which is excellent.
