Baines' Camp review

Rolling your bed outside to sleep outside was a fantastic experince and not to be missed.

Also loved listening to the hippos walking past our room at night!

Baines' Camp review

Baines' has good accommodation but the location seems to be limited every drive went in the same direction and we saw the same animals in the same places every drive. The guiding wasn't as good as any of the Kwando camps and the boat trip wasn't as good as that at Kwara. We didn't do the makaro trip here.

That said, when we left Kwara we had seen everything we wanted to see except a leopard in daylight and cheetah cubs. On the drive from the airstrip to Baines we saw a leopard in a tree! We saw her again in the afternoon initially on the ground then she went into a different tree.

We did the elephant activity the following morning which was a great experience but considering the cost of that activity plus the cost of the stay at Baines it wasn't really worth it. I would have rather had a couple more days at Kwara.
