Pin It

Baines is an exclusive lodge, named after the intrepid 19th century explorer and artist Thomas Baines. It is located close to the Boro River in the Okavango Delta. This small and intimate camp blends seamlessly into the surrounding environment and features five luxurious suites on elevated platforms.

Wooden decks have expansive views of both the river and the lagoon and both teem with life. The roomy suites feature four-poster beds and softly draped fabric, recalling a long-forgotten, more romantic era. The beds are mobile and afford guests the novel option of sleeping contentedly under the stars. Custom hammocks will be the perfect lure for guests looking to while away those sunny African afternoons. The main guest area features a large deck for outdoor dining and a swimming pool with views of the lagoon.

Whether by land or water, guests can track an abundance of game. Evening and nighttime excursions target the Deltas many nocturnal players. The year-round surrounding waters provide a myriad of waterways and a world of floating safaris. Options include the gentle pace of a poled mokoro (dugout canoe) or a motorboat with shaded canopy. Activities also include bush walks with armed guides. Guest staying at Baines Camp may also participate in the elephant interaction on offer at nearby Stanley’s Camp.
