The five lodges are connected by a raised wooden walkway to the main area. The main area features an oversize deck for outdoor dining and views over the permanent water of the lagoon, as well as a swimming pool with two sala’s for refreshing sunbathing. No photograph can convey the scent of sage brush in the early morning, the sound of vultures on a dead elephant, or the incredible brightness of the African stars.
The en suite thatched lodge walls are built from recycled drinks cans and elephant dung
Inside, however, it is tiled, whitewashed and elegantly furnished in dark African wood, with embroidered hangings and animal-skin rugs on the floor.
The four-poster beds are draped with mosquito nets and can be wheeled on to the veranda for a night under a twinkling blanket of incredible bright African stars, listening to the sounds of the bush.
Set amongst the shady trees and water of the Okavango Delta, the small and intimate Baines’ Camp features five luxurious suites set on elevated platforms in the tree line.
With just five lodges and a maximum of 10 people, Baines is fantastic for those who want to escape the tourist hordes.

This area, situated on a private concession neighbouring the Moremi, is superb for viewing all animal and bird species.
Guests may explore by land and water, often into the night to discover nocturnal species. The permanent water of the camp will reveal a world of floating safaris, atmospherically silent at the gentle pace of a poled mokoro (dug-out-canoe) excursion, or faster in a comfortable shaded motorboat. (Subject to water levels.)
A myriad of waterways, feathery beds of papyrus, and animal species, large and small, are waiting to be discovered
Sometimes there is no better way to tune into the bush than on foot, and walking safaris is a speciality at Baines’, with skilled, armed guides introducing the area’s natural wonders.
The choice of activities will not end there. The unique and educational elephant interaction is available to guests at Baines’.
