Sanctuary Baines Camp
Boro River – Okavango Delta
Sanctuary Baines Camp is a very small and intimate safari lodge with just six suites. Perched above the Boro River in a private concession the camp borders the Moremi Game Reserve in the Okavango Delta. The area has a great diversity of wildlife and is a popular romantic safari experience. The area offers a unique wilderness safari in Africa.
Sanctuary Baines’ was named after the 19th century explorer and painter Thomas Baines. As the smallest camp with just six suites it is the epitome of romance. Each suite rests on an elevated platform in the tree line with both star beds and star bathing. Wooden decks offer expansive views over the permanent water of the Boro River and a lagoon teeming with life. 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.
The six elevated suites have light and airy bedrooms opening out onto curved terraces overlooking the Boro River. Each luxury suite features a private viewing deck with Star Bath and four-poster Sky Bed swathed in mosquito netting. The four-poster beds are fully mobile and can easily be wheeled out onto the private wooden deck. For the ultimate indulgence, guests can enjoy a Star Bath on the deck. Each room is equipped with a hairdryer, ceiling fan, in-room safe, minibar, and mosquito nets. En-suite facilities include an indoor shower and double vanity.
