Effortlessly romantic and set amongst shady trees and huge termite mounds nestles the small and intimate Sanctuary Baines' Camp. Poised between the plains game of Moremi and the permanent waters of the Okavango Delta, the area is great for all bird and animal species. A further unique attraction is the chance to meet the orphan elephants adopted by naturalists Doug and Sandy Groves and interact with these gentle giants in their calming, natural environment.

The main area has a deck for outdoor dining and views over the permanent water of the lagoon. The little luxuries are well represented here: there is a swimming pool with private salas for relaxation. To explore on land, game drives in 4x4 vehicles will get you close to Africa's greatest predators by day and in this private reserve, continue well after dark. The permanent water opens up the whole world of floating safaris, atmospherically silent at the gentle pace of a poled mokoro. Truly an eco-camp, the camp walls have been made from recycled materials and neutrally decorated to blend in with the natural habitat.

Why we like it 

  • Sanctuary Baines' Camp is a small and intimate camp with five luxury suites
  • A low environmental impact camp which has been built using commercially grown wood and recycled tin cans
  • Activities included are day and night game drives, walking safaris and mokoros
  • Opportunity to walk with the elephants with the "Living with Elephants" project. This activity is at an extra cost
  • Children over six years old are welcome at the camp
