A fantastic introduction to Botswana and the Sanctuary Lodges for us. Remote yet luxurious this was a true African experience. The cabins were lovely and the staff fantastic. Our guide was knowledgeable and lovely so he truly enhanced our experience of this camp. Lots of lovely surprises at this lodge.

We spent 2 nights at this remote lodge as part of our week of Safari experiences and were blown away at how wonderful a place this was, considering it is in a remote area of the Okavango Delta. You have to be flown into the area via the Stanley's Camp airstrip and then escorted by jeep transport 45 minutes to...

This camp is the best. The cabins are very large with a lovely king bed. The staff is the best I have seen. The meals were delicious. Very clean. The game rides were great. Lots of great animal sighting.

We stayed 4 nights at Baines' Camp and we had an amazing time. The staff was extremely friendly and welcoming, the food was delicious, and our guide Max was the best we've had during our whole trip to Africa. His knowledge was very impressive and he made the best hot chocolates! The staff organised a surprise bubble bath on our...

This wonderful safari lodge is perfectly situated in the Okavango Delta. The deck of the main lodge area sits directly on the water, allowing for close up viewing of hippos, crocodiles, birds and fish. The camp manager, Henri, is a delightful and caring host. Our guide, Fred, had deep knowledge and true caring for the animals we viewed, (and he...

Wow! I have been to Africa 5 times and our visit to this lodge in the Okavango Delta is the best. The lodge is a 10 minute flight from the Maun airport. When we landed we had the traditional safari welcome sparkling wine and snacks before we started to head to the lodge. Our very expert guide shared with us...

You're paying for privacy and amazing views here. Wow! Love the history (original walls of the camp were built out of aluminium cans). Love the fire pit at night with the other travelers. The food is outstanding (though maybe a tad salty). Staff is friendly and attentive without overcrowding and feeling like they only work for tips. Hate the mosquitoes....

We stayed 2 nights and had 4 drives before moving on. Our accomodation was first class, and the reception we got on arrival via a short flight on a light plane and a game drive on the way was as unexpected as it was a delight. In fact we could not fault any of it from the staff and our...

We spent a couple of days at Baines Camp and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The staff was fantastic. Our guides were top notch and the Delta is a world of its own. Especially great if you are into birding but we also saw just about everything.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Sanctuary Baines’ Camp is our smallest and most intimate camp, built on raised platforms high above the Boro River in a huge private concession bordering the Moremi Game Reserve. 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. See prowling lions looking for prey at the edge of the lagoon that the camp overlooks, or watch one of the many elephants who live in the area. 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. ... more   less
