Okavango, Botswana

Sanctuary Baines' Camp is located on a huge private concession bordering the Moremi Game Reserve in the Okavango Delta, home to some of the most spectacular wildlife on Earth. This is one of the smallest and most intimate camps in the Okavango Delta, with only five luxurious suites.

Set in a grove of trees, and surrounded by papyrus beds, this low environmental impact camp has been built using commercially grown wood and recycled tin cans. The local community in Maun was invited to collect as many cans as they could, and paid a fee for every can collected. These cans were then incorporated into the camp buildings, forming the backbone of the structures.

Additional Activities

Elephant interaction - An extraordinary treat available at Sanctuary Baines' Camp is the opportunity to go walking in the bush with three semi-habituated elephants. Jabu, Thembi and Morula are elephants that were orphaned nearby and adopted by Doug and Sandi Groves. The elephants 'take' guests on long walks, foraging in the area in absolute safety. They show travelers how they look for food, strip leaves from branches with their long trunks and take showers in the lagoons of the delta. This activity includes a leisurely paced walk with a trio of semi-habituated elephants, observing and interacting with them, and a picnic lunch in their company

Helicopter flights over the delta - These scenic flights involve flying west of the game drive routes towards the permanent delta, exposing to guests areas which are unreachable by vehicle or boat. Guests have the option of the doors being removed for unrestricted photographic opportunities. This is done with the utmost consideration to guest safety. The activity highlights the sheer enormity of the Okavango Delta exposing the many animal species of the region.

Rooms

The five tented suites at Sanctuary Baines' are opulent and luxurious, with adjoining outdoor bathrooms and four-poster beds swathed in mosquito netting. Traditional safari ceiling fans create a cooling breeze at even the hottest times of the year. 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 are often be spotted.
