Experience a night under the stars in your four poster bed on your private deck waking up to the sound of the African dawn chorus.
You made sure that the person picking up my internet enquiry was knowledgeable, interested, had an engaging telephone and email manner, and was able to provide a one-stop point of reference, from our first telephone conversation through to arranging the deposit. The service delivery Chris Hamlin provided was second to none - really impressive.

The main area has a deck for outdoor dining and views over the permanent water of the lagoon. The little luxuries are well represented here: there is a swimming pool with private salas for relaxation. To explore on land, game drives in 4x4 vehicles will get you close to Africa's greatest predators by day and in this private reserve, continue well after dark. The permanent water opens up the whole world of floating safaris, atmospherically silent at the gentle pace of a poled mokoro. Truly an eco-camp, the camp walls have been made from recycled materials and neutrally decorated to blend in with the natural habitat.
Sanctuary Baines' Camp has just five luxury suites. All have en suite facilities, mini bars and ceiling fans. The suites are set on elevated platforms, with wooden decks overlooking the permanent water of the Boro River. Four-poster beds are draped with netting and are designed to be easily rolled out onto your private wooden decks for nights under the stars. All suites and communal areas are linked by wooden boardwalks.
There are no triple rooms available at the camp.
