Where Classic Luxury
meets Secluded Serenity

Elegantly Appointed Havens

Eight idyllic suites and a two-bedroom family haven await at Baines’ River Camp, ready to host a total of 20 discerning guests

Each chalet is an ode to beauty, exquisitely decorated and outfitted with every amenity to ensure your stay is both lavish and tranquil.


Indulgent Grandeur in the Heart of Wilderness

As you step into the embrace of Baines’ River Camp, the central domain radiates expansiveness and luxury

Boasting twin lounges and paired dining spaces, the living area blends with the outdoors. Sheltered within, a private enclave is perfect for gatherings and the bar spills its charm into the poolside vista overlooking the river. Here, luxury meets untamed beauty, forging an unforgettable chapter in your journey.

“From start to finish we couldn’t have been made to feel more welcome.”

Situated in a spectacular location, literally surrounded by wildlife, the accommodation is far superior to regular tented camps. The guides for fishing or game drives are all professional and extremely knowledgeable, and the trips and activities are well organised. It was so good that we have already booked to return next year. ~ Annie, United kingdom, October 2022

Eight beautifully decorated & well-equipped suites

Baines’ River Camp can accommodate 20 guests in eight individual suites and a two-bedroom family unit. Each of the chalets have been beautifully decorated, equipped with everything you would need to ensure a comfortable and relaxing stay.
