Sanctuary Baines’ Camp is our smallest camp with only five luxurious suites. With star baths and sky beds on your private deck, this is a romantic oasis.
Set in a grove of trees, and surrounded by papyrus beds, Sanctuary Baines’ Camp is built on raised platforms high above the Boro River in a private concession bordering the Moremi Game Reserve. We encouraged the local community in Maun to collect cans, with a fee paid for every can, which were recycled to form the backbone of the camp’s structures. Baines’ is also one of only two camps to offer you the opportunity to walk with elephants.

Accommodation+This is Sanctuary's smallest and most intimate camp, 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.
Intimate Camp+Named after the 19th century explorer and painter Thomas Baines, this is Sanctuary's smallest camp with just five suites. An eco-friendly property built using only commercially grown wood, with over 150,000 recycled aluminium cans incorporated within the walls to provide insulation. The camp is raised above the permanent water of the Boro River while wooden walkways connect the main areas and luxury rooms. The swimming pool and the wide wooden deck that surrounds the main dining and sitting room is the ideal place to relax while observing the varied wildlife present here. Watch hippos wallow at the edge of the lagoon that the camp overlooks, or see one of the many elephants who live in the area.
Star Baths & Sky Beds+The five suites at Sanctuary Baines' are opulent and luxurious, with ensuite facilities and four-poster beds. 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 can often be spotted. Or take an indulgent soak under the stars on your own private viewing deck in our opulent star bath. At Baines' Camp, the sky's the limit.
Dining+Sanctuary Baines' Camp prides itself on its personalised service and this includes your culinary preferences and needs. Please let us know how we could make your experience even more memorable. From delicious dining with spectacular views to sundowners drinks in the middle of the bush - Sanctuary Baines' Camp has so much to offer.
Secluded Bush Brunch
Start the day with a delectable meal consisting of a full English and continental breakfast, before departing for your morning game drive. If you decide to experience our unique elephant interaction activity you will meet Jabu, Morula and Thembi and enjoy a secluded bush brunch in the company of these three gentle giants - now that is lunch with a difference. Elegant high teas are served in the afternoon just before departing for your afternoon game activity. It is often hard to believe that the chefs are able to make such delicious cakes, cookies and treats - all here in the middle of the African bush! On return, relax at the pool or sip on a cocktail on your private viewing deck before returning to the main area for your three course plated dinner.
If you are celebrating a special occasion we could arrange a special private dinner by the pool for a romantic night under the African stars - the perfect way to start an evening under the African sky.
