Sanctuary Baines Camp


Walk with elephants in the Delta

Sanctuary Baine’s Camp is, without a doubt, one of the most distinctive safari experiences in South Africa. The camp is built on raised platforms right over the Boro River, providing guests with jaw-dropping views of the surrounding wilderness. But the main attraction has to be the unique opportunity to meet and interact with Jabu, Thembi and Morula – a trio of semi-habituated elephants adopted by Doug and Sandi Groves after they were orphaned by culling operations.

There’s plenty to do at Sanctuary Baine’s Camp, including game drives in open 4x4 vehicles, guided walking safaris and river excursions by way of mokoro or motorised boat. The Okavango Delta region is famous for its highly dense animal population and regular sightings of lion, buffalo, giraffe and wild dog are a common occurrence here. During the summer, scores of flamingos gather in the wetlands to strut their stuff.

Accommodation consists of only 5 Suites, making this the ideal destination for an intimate honeymoon or any romantic getaway. All Suites feature private decks, en-suite bathrooms, four-poster beds and ceiling fans. The bed can be wheeled out on to the deck at night for a star-gazing experience.



  • The unique ‘Living with Elephants’ activity is a once-in-a-lifetime experience
  • Exciting game drives, walking safaris and boat rides are equal parts educational and entertaining
  • Luxurious Suites featuring private viewing decks with fantastic vistas fanning out in every direction
  • Eco-friendly camp constructed from commercially grown wood and recycled tin for wall insulation
