Sanctuary Baines’ Camp is one of the premium destinations in the world for a dynamic safari experience and offers a truly unique wilderness safari in Africa. 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.
An intimate safari camp, Sanctuary Baines’ was named after the 19th century explorer and painter Thomas Baines.
This is Sanctuary’s smallest camp with just five suites set on elevated platforms in the tree line with wooden decks that offer expansive views over the permanent water of the Boro River and a lagoon teeming with life. With star baths and sky beds on your private deck, this is a romantic oasis.
An eco-friendly property, Sanctuary Baines’ Camp was built using only commercially grown wood, with over 150,000 recycled aluminium cans incorporated within the walls to provide insulation.
Activities included are day and night game drives, walking safaris and mokoros. Even better, guests at this unique retreat have an opportunity to walk with the elephants with the “Living with Elephants” project. This activity includes a leisurely paced walk with these semi-habituated elephants, observing and interacting with them, and a picnic lunch in their company.
