Benefitting from an unparalleled feeling of intimacy, Sanctuary’s smallest camp in Botswana really prides itself on its relaxed, informal and eco-friendly nature.

With only five suites and the main camp building all constructed from commercially grown wood and recycled tin cans perched on the papyrus banks of a Boro river lagoon, you couldn’t get further away from it all. The camp also partners with the Living with Elephants Foundation to house and protect rescued elephants and orphans, before releasing them to the wild.

Located on the edges of the Moremi Game Reserve, this camp’s positioning means that you’re likely to come across lion, cheetah, crocodile, elephant and a myriad of bird species on your game drives or canoe safaris. The proximity of your raised suites to the water also means that you can sit and spot stealth-like hippos from your own private viewing deck.

The inside is decorated comfortably with inviting four-poster beds swathed in white mosquito nets, hardwood floors draped in animal hides and a general feeling of open-plan luxury on the threshold of this wilderness.

Eco-conscious design

At Baines’ Camp, the main building is made from commercially-grown wood and recycled tin cans that the camp pays the local community to collect.

Living with Elephants Foundation

Sanctuary Baines’ Camp together with the Living with Elephants Foundation, run by Doug and Sandi Groves, works to secure the long-term future of its elephant ambassadors. Living with Elephants Foundation is devoted to providing rescued African elephants with a second chance and safe home in the wilderness of Botswana’s Okavango Delta. Currently under care are Jabu and Morula, two rescued elephants, saved from culling operations in which they were orphaned. Jabu and Morula cannot yet be released fully to the wild due to their traumatic starts in life and chronic injuries.
