Perched above the Boro River in a private concession bordering the Moremi Game Reserve, Sanctuary Baines’ Camp and its stilted, standalone suites have been transformed with larger spaces and extended decking, welcoming in the surrounding wilderness.
The six raised abodes at this very boutique camp have light and airy bedrooms opening out onto curved terraces overlooking the river. As intimate as this light-footed camp feels, there’s still an impressive sense of scale with high windows letting in the bright African sun.
After an exhilarating game drive, nothing is more tranquil than an indulgent soak in the Star Bath – now a permanent feature of each private terrace. The suites’ four poster beds roll out for guests to sleep under the clear, starry Delta night skies.
Discover a world entirely interconnected by wooden walkways – a colourful lounge with hanging chairs, intimate seating areas and alfresco dining. Head to the boma and unwind by the glow of the fire before sitting down to an expertly prepared meal abundant with African spices.
Hand-woven rugs, batik-dyed fabrics and characterful ceramics inspired by indigenous handicrafts channel the energy and colours of Botswana culture. Contemporary black-and-white photographs capture and convey the native flora and fauna that enliven this awe-inspiring region.
